International Conference on Fast Reactors and Related Fuel Cycles: Next Generation Nuclear Systems for Sustainable Development (FR17)

26–29 June 2017, Yekaterinburg, Russian Federation

Fast Reactors Conference (FR17)

The nuclear industry has from its inception recognized the important role of fast reactors and related fuel cycles in ensuring the long-term sustainability of nuclear power. Fast reactors operated in a closed fuel cycle help to improve the utilization of resources — both fissile and fertile materials — used in nuclear fuels and contribute to a significant reduction of the burden of generated radioactive waste.

The International Conference on Fast Reactors and Related Fuel Cycles: Next Generation Nuclear Systems for Sustainable Development (FR17), hosted by the Government of the Russian Federation through State Atomic Energy Corporation ROSATOM, provides a forum to exchange information on national and international programmes as well as new developments and experiences. The 26-29 June gathering in Yekaterinburg is the third such international conference after previous editions in Kyoto, Japan (2009), and Paris, France (2013).
