The purpose of the event is to discuss the innovative designs of Small and Medium Sized or Modular Reactors (SMRs) within the framework of the six concepts outlined by the Generation-IV International Forum (GIF). Additionally, the event will serve as a platform for stimulating discussions and facilitating the exchange of fresh ideas among both the participants and the lecturers.

Scope and Nature 

During the five-day workshop, selected participants will receive lectures from international experts from the IAEA, China, and other IAEA Member States, and they will also actively engage in interactive discussions. The workshop will provide participants with a theoretical foundation in the most crucial research and technology development areas of innovative reactors and energy systems, as well as familiarity with modern physical models and simulation codes for the design and safety analysis of advanced nuclear reactors of SMR types. Active discussions, group activities, poster sessions, and various blended learning approaches will enhance the sharing of new ideas and emphasize the need for continued R&D and innovation in all areas of innovative SMRs. By the end of the workshop, participants are expected to have a better understanding of the six Gen-IV conceptual reactor designs, their scalability to SMRs, and the benefits and challenges of using different coolants and technologies. The hosting organization will provide technical tours for participants to the Fast-neutron Spectrum SMR. In addition, the workshop will provide opportunities for participants to network and continue sharing information and good practices as well as other potential follow-up tasks and coordinated activities, as appropriate.
