8 July 2020 | Virtual 14th GIF-IAEA Interface Meeting

13:00 - 16:30 CET (Vienna, GMT +02:00) 

Group photo: Some of the over 60 participants participating in the virtual meeting.
Shared interests between GIF and the IAEA have been confirmed in 13 interface meetings held since 2003. Areas of technical dialogue, coordination and cooperation have been explored in each of these meetings. In the past, most of the joint activities were exclusively related to the INPRO and NPTDS technical areas, but evolved to include many other areas, including nuclear safety and security, economics, and educational and training. Within GIF, several Working Groups and Task Forces cover these cross-cutting areas.
The objectives of the 14th GIF-IAEA Interface Meeting are to:
  • Exchange information on the progress, status and future plans of activities related to RD&D and technology innovations of NES, including Gen IV reactors;
  • Monitor progress and update status of action items agreed in the previous interface meeting; and
  • Continue exploring new potential areas for cooperation, identifying action items and establishing priorities for further consideration.
