Upcoming events

13-16 May 2024, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) (Sweden)


This open and field-specific conference will have a focus on the latest progress of international knowledge on severe accidents in nuclear plants. As in the last edition, the scope of the conference includes also innovative nuclear technologies, such as Accident Tolerant Fuels (ATFs), Small Modular Reactors (SMRs), fusion, etc.

ERMSAR 2024 will pay particular attention to technical discussions and will ensure enough time and the best atmosphere to turn the event in a true opportunity for students, researchers and engineers’ exchanges. The Conference will display the major progress recently accomplished in the field and will look ahead to highlight what should be in the near-term research agenda.

The third Research Coordination Meeting (RCM) of the IAEA Coordinated Research Project (CRP) on the In-Vessel Melt Retention (IVMR)
27-31 May 2024, IAEA, Vienna (AUSTRIA)


The primary goal of this CRP is to enhance global consensus on the scientific and technological basis crucial for safety demonstrations of IVMR, particularly in high-power reactors, and to synchronize international perspectives and understanding.

During the third RCM, the focus will be on assessing participants’ contributions, reviewing CRP advancements toward established goals, and presenting and discussing results, conclusions, recommendations, and other pertinent information essential for the project evaluation.
