Generation IV – IAEA and GIF Call for Faster Deployment

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Generation IV International Forum (GIF), an initiative involving 13 countries focused on next-generation nuclear power technologies, called for greater efforts to support the early deployment of innovative nuclear reactor systems to address climate change.

The appeal came during the annual 14th GIF-IAEA interface meeting, a gathering of senior IAEA officials, GIF members from several nations, the European Commission and the Nuclear Energy Agency of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, which serves as the GIF technical secretariat.

Participants in the meeting reviewed progress on the research, design and development of innovative nuclear reactor systems, including in areas such as nuclear safety, proliferation resistance, economics, education and training.
