13th IAEA-GIF Interface Meeting

18 – 19 Mar 2019
Vienna, Austria
Event code: EVT1802002

The 13th GIF-IAEA Interface meeting will be held in the IAEA, Vienna from 18-19 March 2019.

The IAEA supports Member States in the development of innovative advanced nuclear energy systems across the whole spectrum of technical areas. The International Project on Innovative Nuclear Reactors and Fuel Cycles (INPRO) was established in 2000 as an IAEA flagship project through a General Conference resolution focused in the insurance of a sustainable nuclear energy supply to help meet 21st century global energy needs. The advanced reactor technology development activities at the agency is led by the Nuclear Power Technology Development Section (NPTDS).

The Generation IV International Forum (GIF) is a co-operative international endeavour which was set up to carry out the research and development needed to establish the feasibility and performance capabilities of the next generation nuclear energy systems. It was established in 2000 and currently has fourteen members. GIF selected six reactor technologies for further research and development. These include the: Gas-cooled Fast Reactor (GFR), Lead-cooled Fast Reactor (LFR), Molten Salt Reactor (MSR), Supercritical Water-cooled Reactor (SCWR), Sodium-cooled Fast Reactor (SFR) and Very High Temperature Reactor (VHTR).

In the past, most of the joint activities were exclusively related to the INPRO and NPTDS technical areas but it evolved to include many other areas, including Nuclear Safety and Security, Economics, Educational and Training. Within GIF several Working Groups and task Forces cover these cross-cutting areas. Since the mutual areas of interest involve activities throughout the IAEA, other IAEA offices are continuously encouraged to participate in the meeting to continue the technical exchange and to explore and develop additional opportunities for cooperation.
