The International Atomic Energy Agency plans to name its new facilities at existing laboratories near Vienna after former chief Yukiya Amano, a Japanese diplomat who died in July in the middle of his third four-year term, members of the IAEA board of governors said Monday.

The new facilities at the laboratories in Seibersdorf, Austria, will focus on ways to apply nuclear technology in fields such as agriculture, and will start operating next spring. The naming plan is set to be formally adopted at the IAEA’s annual general meeting from Sept. 16.
