Join us for the latest updates on the U.S. Department of Energy's Versatile Test Reactor (VTR) program on Oct. 29 at 12 noon ET during Idaho National Laboratory's webinar:

Advancing U.S. Nuclear Research and Development – A Briefing and Discussion on the VTR

The Versatile Test Reactor is a one-of-a-kind scientific user facility capable of performing large-scale tests and experiments simply not possible today. The VTR will support research and development of innovative nuclear energy technologies that can supply the world with abundant carbon-free energy. With the addition of VTR, the United States will again lead the world in nuclear energy research, safety, and security while also supporting industry partners as they commercialize new technologies.

During the webinar, Kemal Pasamehmetoglu, the executive director of the VTR program, will share an overview and update on milestones, including DOE's recent CD-1 announcement. Immediately following, experts from industry, think tanks, government and the labs, and academia will participate in a panel discussion covering a range of topics, including U.S. competitiveness, energy innovations, research developments and new capabilities.

The briefing will be moderated by Craig Piercy, the Executive Director and CEO of the American Nuclear Society
