T5 Advancing Small Modular Reactor Safety through Global Collaboration: International Research and Regulatory Research
Small modular reactors (SMRs) represent a promising avenue for addressing the world’s growing energy needs while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. To ensure their safe and efficient deployment, it is imperative to foster international collaboration in research, development, and regulatory frameworks. This session will bring together experts from across the globe to discuss the latest advancements in SMR technology, research initiatives, and the regulatory considerations essential for international SMR deployment. It will provide valuable insights into the progress of SMR development on an international scale, highlighting the importance of cooperation among stakeholders and shedding light on the regulatory challenges and solutions in this exciting field. Topics will include harmonization of safety standards, knowledge sharing, research partnerships, and lessons learned from international collaborations. Join us to explore how global cooperation can accelerate the realization of SMRs as a sustainable energy solution.
