Sessions on Key Topic Outstanding Know-how & Sustainable Innovations, 7 and 8 May 2019

Focus Session: International Innovation: Small Modular Reactors: a Major Element of the Future of Nuclear? | Tuesday, 7 May 2019, 14:30 - 18:00

Coordinator: Dr. Christian Raetzke, Rechtsanwalt, Germany

For years now, Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) have been under development and under discussion. Now, the first projects seem to move closer to implementation. A number of governments have expressed strong interest. The issue of whether and how to adapt regulatory requirements to SMRs is investigated by regulators and industry alike. Perhaps most remarkably, the business case for SMRs, long considered a show-stopper, is now quoted in favour of their deployment. An international panel will discuss these issues.
