Technical Meeting on the Benefits and Challenges of Fast Reactors of the SMR Type

Europe/Rome
Milano, Italy

Milano, Italy

Description

The purpose of the event is to discuss the development of fast neutron reactors belonging to the type of small and medium sized or modular reactors (SMRs); to share the up-to-date fast SMR technology; and to identify potential benefits and challenges in the development and deployment of fast SMRs.

The main objectives of the meeting are to:

  • Promote and facilitate the exchange of information within the scope of the event and its related topics at the national and international level;
  • Present and discuss the current status of research and development (R&D) in the field of fast neutron SMRs;
  • Discuss and identify potential benefits and challenges in the development and deployment of fast SMRs;
  • Discuss and identify R&D needs and gaps to assess future requirements in the field, which should eventually lead to efforts being concentrated in the key lacking areas;
  • Provide recommendations to the IAEA for future joint efforts and coordinated research activities (if required) in the field; and
  • Prepare a reference document summarizing the work presented by the participants, including the findings of the study in the standard IAEA publications format.
