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

INPRO Dialogue Forum on Nuclear Energy Innovations:
Common User Considerations for Small and Medium-sized Nuclear Power Reactors


10–14 October 2011

IAEA, Vienna, Austria



The INPRO Dialogue Forum brings together nuclear technology users and technology holders from interested Member States to discuss issues related to sustainable nuclear energy development and deployment.

A study on Common User Considerations (CUC) by Developing Countries for Future Nuclear Energy Systems (undertaken in 2007-2008) provided a comprehensive summary of the opinion of experts from developing countries considering nuclear power programmes.

The purpose of this workshop – the third in the series of the INPRO Dialogue Forum – is to discuss user considerations (of both developing and developed countries) for small and medium-sized nuclear power reactors (SMRs), in the light of conclusions reached in the CUC study and recent developments in SMR technologies.

The workshop is conducted in cooperation between INPRO and the Nuclear Power Technology Development Section, Division of Nuclear Power, Department of Nuclear Energy, and is an activity in the IAEA TC Project INT/4/142 "Promoting Technology Development and Application of Future Nuclear Energy Systems in Developing Countries".
