Small nuclear reactors can play an important role in addressing the energy, health, safety, security and climate change goals of the world. While the water-cooled small modular reactor technology is developing rapidly, a number of non‑water‑cooled advanced small reactor technologies, such as the molten salt reactor, the liquid metal reactor and the high temperature gas reactor, are being developed. These small reactors have advanced passive safety features, are resistant to nuclear proliferation, have no greenhouse gas emissions and promoted as being economically competitive. They are suitable for niche and off-grid applications as well as connection to electric grids in slow-growing economies to increase capacity as needed.
Next-generation research reactors are considered for multiple purposes, such as radionuclide production, silicon doping, neutron activation, neutron radiography, materials research, fuel irradiation and generating data for reactor physics code validation activities.
This technical meeting will cover topics of interest to designers, operators, researchers and analysts involved in the design, development and deployment of small reactors for research and power generation purposes.
