New and Advanced Nuclear Reactors in the U.S.: Security and Safeguards
Join us for open sessions on October 4 and 5 with speakers on Security, Safeguards, and International Issues for New and Advanced Reactors
Nuclear energy could play an important role in moving towards net-zero emissions, but there are many economic, regulatory, and societal factors that determine whether expanding nuclear power is a feasible solution. The National Academies invite you to join us for virtual open sessions exploring security, safeguards, and international issues for new and advanced reactors on October 4-5, 2021 from 11:00am-3:00pm ET.
