Technical Cooperation Project INT/4/142: "Promoting Technology Development and Application of Future Nuclear Energy Systems in Developing Countries"

Workshop of the INPRO Dialogue Forum on Nuclear Energy Innovations


1-4 February 2010

IAEA, Vienna, Austria



The INPRO Dialogue Forum on Nuclear Energy Innovations is a cross-cutting programme area in the INPRO Action Plan 2010-2011. It aims at fostering the information exchange between nuclear technology holders and technology users to ensure that future technical and institutional innovations meet the expectations of both. The forum also addresses national long-term nuclear planning and the global nuclear energy system.

The purpose of the Workshop, which is the first activity in this INPRO programme area, is to address a set of topical issues to be discussed in the Dialogue Forum:

  • Socio- and macroeconomic factors that influence decisions regarding deployment of nuclear systems
  • Proven technology, i.e. technology in an innovative nuclear power plant system which should be "proven" or "mature" before it is included in a proposed design
  • Safety Approaches for Innovative Nuclear Systems, which are an essential consideration for the overall assessment of a given innovative nuclear energy system

The workshop will be conducted in cooperation between INPRO, the Planning and Economic Studies Section (PESS) of the Department of Nuclear Energy, and the Division of Nuclear Installation Safety (NSNI) of the Department of Nuclear Safety and Security.

Please continue visiting this web page, since more information will be posted as it becomes available.
