Technical Meeting on Fast Reactors and Related Fuel Cycle Facilities with Improved Economic Characteristics

The objectives of the meeting are:

  • To identify the main issues and technical features that affect capital and energy production costs of fast reactors and related fuel cycle facilities
  • To present fast reactor concepts and designs with enhanced economic characteristics, as well as innovative technical solutions (components, subsystems, etc.) that have the potential to reduce the capital costs of fast reactors and related fuel cycle facilities
  • To present energy models and advanced tools for the cost assessment of innovative fast reactors and associated nuclear fuel cycles
  • To discuss the results of studies and ongoing R&D activities that address cost reduction and the future economic competitiveness of fast reactors
  • To identify research and technology development needs in the field, also in view of new IAEA initiatives to help and support Member States in improving the economic competitiveness of fast reactors and associated nuclear fuel cycles
