[en] • GIF prospective interest: – Application of INPRO methodology may help to reveal potential gaps in R&D program and to close these gaps. – NESA study may be useful for future marketing of the reactor design. • INPRO prospective interest: – Feedback from the assessment of systems based on innovative reactors.
[en] During the last two days, we had the third GIF-IAEA Workshop on safety of sodium-cooled fast reactors (SFR). This time, we've had intensive discussion on the safety design criteria. I hope the safety criteria of GIF would be developed into the criteria of the IAEA and be applied internationally in the future.
[en] Conclusion: • GIF Cost Estimating Methodology is available for use by all GIF projects (Reaffirm it through trial cost estimation); • The EMWG continues to revise G4ECONS and monitor Methodology applications.
[en] Concluding remarks: • The Interim Safety Design Criteria (SDC) report is provided to IAEA, being ready to start technical interaction with IAEA. • The updated SDC report will be delivered to next GIF PG meeting in May with the incorporation of the feedback from the joint GIF/IAEA SFR SDC workshop. • The SDC report would be disseminated and utilized for SFR design at international level. • Safety improvement comes from continuous efforts for updating safety designs: – It is enhanced by the new safety technology and recent knowledge related to the operation experiences and R&D outcomes; – In this sense, the SDC will be updated with the times as necessary, by including constructive feedbacks from all the international technical entities including regulatory bodies.
[en] Brief overview of: the current status and activities of LFR PSSC; the European Lead-cooled Fast Reactor ELFR; the BREST-OD-300 Lead-cooled Reactor; the Small Secure Transportable Autonomous Reactor (SSTAR); and the EC Next Step Update of Strategic European Documents.
[en] Vision: Programme Development: Four INPRO projects - 1. Long-range national nuclear energy strategies: supporting Member States' nuclear sustainability assessments, strategic planning and decision making, using the INPRO methodology; 2. Global sustainable nuclear energy scenarios: system studies of long-term development and deployment of sustainable nuclear energy systems; 3. Technical and institutional innovations: facilitating collaboration on selected technological subjects and changes in institutional arrangements to facilitate innovation; and 4. INPRO Dialogue Forum on Global Nuclear Energy Sustainability: fosters information exchange on key issues of mutual interest between nuclear technology developers, users, and other stakeholders.
[en] Objectives of PR&PP Working Group: • Facilitate introduction of PR&PP features into the design process at the earliest possible stage of concept development → PR&PP by design. • Assure that PR&PP results are an aid to informing decisions by policy makers in areas involving safety, economics, sustainability, and related institutional and legal issues.
[en] The close cooperation of INPRO with the three GIF methodology working groups (proliferation resistance and physical protection, risk and safety, and economic modeling) has been very productive and should continue. In the future, GIF will continue to focus its efforts on facilitating advanced reactor R&D cooperation among our members. As part of the GIF vision, I am open to hearing from IAEA about any suggestions on how INPRO and GIF can strengthen our relationship to support mutual objectives.
