Civil Nuclear Energy Research and Development Working Group (CNWG) Technical Meetings

 

Feb. 9, 2015
On behalf of the U.S. Department of Energy, Argonne's Nuclear Engineering Division hosted technical meetings of the Civil Nuclear Energy Research and Development Working Group (CNWG) from January 27-29, 2015.

The CNWG was established by the U.S.-Japan Bilateral Commission on Civil Nuclear Cooperation in 2012 to enhance coordination of joint civil nuclear R&D efforts between the United States and Japan, building upon the collaborative R&D objectives of the U.S.-Japan Joint Nuclear Energy Action Plan (JNEAP), created in 2007. The CNWG is now coordinating cooperative nuclear energy R&D in several of the topical areas previously supported under the JNEAP, including advanced reactor and fuel cycle technologies, as well as a number of new areas endorsed by the Bilateral Commission, such as existing reactor fleet sustainability.

On January 27-28, 76 members from the U.S. and Japan met for the Second Sub-Working Group Technical Meeting of the CNWG, where the three sub-working groups reviewed the status of technical cooperation and prepared reports of activities and accomplishments. On January 29, the Third Meeting of the CNWG of the Bilateral Commission on Civil Nuclear Cooperation was held. High level officials from Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI); Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science & Technology (MEXT); Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) and DOE-NE attended this meeting. The sub-working group status reports were reviewed and further actions to promote continued collaborative progress were discussed. Tours of Argonne facilities including the Advanced Photon Source, reactor safety experimental facilities, and fuel cycle technologies facilities were also included in the meeting.
