An ICTP-IAEA meeting

Since 2016, this workshop marks the fourth joint ICTP-IAEA event on innovative nuclear energy systems. We will review the latest advancements in nuclear reactor design and fuel cycle options, with a particular emphasis on the design and technological features of next generation reactors.
The program is designed to provide a foundational understanding of various nuclear reactor technologies and related fuel cycles. Through the program, participants will gain a theoretical foundation in the most important research and development areas of innovative nuclear energy systems. This includes exposure to modern physical models and numerical simulation codes used for designing and analysing the safety of advanced nuclear reactors. The workshop targets young scientists, researchers, and engineers currently involved in nuclear reactor research, as well as students interested in the field. By using active discussions, group activities, poster sessions, and blended learning approaches, the program fosters the sharing of new ideas and emphasizes the need for continued R&D and innovation in all areas of nuclear reactor and fuel cycle science and technology.
  • Global scenarios for nuclear energy
  • Innovative reactor concepts and fuel cycle options
  • Status of research and technology development for innovative nuclear reactor and fuel cycle technologies
  • Reactor physics of innovative nuclear energy systems
  • Safety approaches, including passive safety systems and safety analysis, including severe accident scenarios, and 
  • Advanced modeling and simulation of nuclear reactors
