INL, partner offering virtual workshop series on Fission Battery Initiative to CAES faculty

December 16, 2020

Idaho National Laboratory and the National University Consortium are organizing a virtual workshop series focused on topics related to the Fission Battery Initiative.

The initiative envisions developing technologies that enable nuclear reactor systems to function as batteries (see attached invitation for more details on the initiative).

These workshops, which are open to faculty at the CAES universities, will provide an opportunity to learn about and discuss the research and development needed to establish technologies that can fully achieve battery-like functionality for nuclear energy systems.

The topics and dates of each workshop are listed below, along with a link to register. The final agenda and list of speakers will be released closer to the workshop dates.

Registration is required to attend; please note that each day requires a separate registration. Upon registering you will receive a calendar notice via email which includes the live link for the virtual meeting.
