Concerns over energy resource availability, climate change, and energy security suggest an important role for nuclear power in supplying energy in the 21st century. The International Project on Innovative Nuclear Reactors and Fuel Cycles (INPRO) was established in 2000 to help ensure that nuclear energy is available to contribute to meeting the energy needs of the 21st century in a sustainable manner.
The IAEA INPRO Collaboration Platform provides a site for collaboration, increasing the participation of experts and organizations involved in INPRO activities, and making available additional sources of information that complement existing trainings, workshops and meetings.
INPRO is a membership-based project that supports its members on their long-term planning and collaboration on innovations in reactors, fuel cycles and institutional approaches that will promote the sustainable development of nuclear energy. INPRO's membership currently consists of 42 Members – 41 IAEA Member States and the European Commission (EC):
Algeria, Argentina, Armenia, Bangladesh, Belarus, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Czech Republic, Egypt, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Morocco, Netherlands, Pakistan, Poland, Romania, Russian Federation, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, United States of America, Vietnam and the EC. Several other countries participate on a working level or as observers in INPRO meetings.
