Thinking Outside the Dome: Strategic eForum on Nuclear Innovation

Embracing the spirit of nuclear innovation means thinking outside the reactor dome. It requires moving beyond sole consideration of reactor technology and drawing on the lessons from other industries while also exploring transformative changes to adapt nuclear energy technologies for novel applications like heat, hydrogen, and radioisotope production.

This free virtual event will feature a high-level panel in which a group of diverse and international experts will discuss:

  • What the nuclear sector can learn from the renewables industry as it begins to deploy a range of new and innovative reactor designs.
  • What the nuclear sector can learn from other sectors that have experienced transformative change and accelerated new technology development in response to a crisis.
  • The challenges in moving beyond electricity production for nuclear technologies to providing heat, hydrogen, etc.
  • Real-world examples of innovative technologies impacting the construction and operation of nuclear plants today.
  • Recent non-technology innovations that are facilitating the deployment of nuclear projects around the world.
