Idaho National Laboratory’s Small Business Program's next session in its "INL Industry Engagement" webinar series will continue focusing on partnership opportunities, highlighting the National Reactor Innovation Center (NRIC) led by the laboratory.
Authorized by the Nuclear Energy Innovation Capabilities Act, NRIC was established in August 2019 to provide resources to test, demonstrate and assess the performance of new nuclear technologies – essential steps that must be completed before new advanced fission systems are available commercially. Among NRIC’s goals is to accelerate the deployment of advanced nuclear energy technology.
The webinar, which will take place from 9 to 10 a.m. MDT (11 a.m. to noon EDT) Wednesday, July 8, will feature a presentation from NRIC Director Dr. Ashley Finan, discussing her vision for the program.
Anyone interested in learning more about NRIC and partnerships related to INL’s unique nuclear research capabilities is invited to join.
