8th GIF-INPRO Interface Meeting


Shared interests between the Generation IV International Forum (GIF) and INPRO have been confirmed in seven interface meetings held at the IAEA since 2003.

INPRO’s activities are centred on key concepts of assessment of nuclear energy system sustainability, support for development of long-range national and global nuclear energy strategies, and reporting on technological and institutional innovations that are necessary to achieve sustainable nuclear power programmes in this century. GIF is focused on developing six selected innovative nuclear reactor concepts and and suitable tools necessary to analyse different options related to the new reactor concepts.

The objectives of the 8th GIF-INPRO/IAEA Interface meeting are to:

  1. Exchange information on the progress, status and future plans of activities related to R&D and technology innovation of NES, including Gen IV reactors.
  2. Monitor progress and update status of action items agreed in the previous interface meeting.
  3. Continue exploring new areas having potential for cooperation and identifying action items and establishing priorities for further consideration.
