GENIORS Stakeholders event & Topical Day Partitioning meets transmutation

GENIORS and SCK-CEN organised from 24 to 25th of October a Stakeholders event & Topical Meeting on Partitioning and Transmutation, taking place in Antwerp (Belgium).

The Stakeholders event & Topical Day provided insight on the current state of the art of partitioning and transmutation and present and future (inter)national scenarios. The aim was to create an interface between the involved communities and stakeholders to discuss and interact on technical-scientific, economic and political levels.

During the Stakeholders event, industrial, agencies and public authorities representatives presented their analyses, vision, roadmap, expectations or limitations related to the GEN IV approach.

During the Topical Day, researchers from the different communities had the opportunity to meet, exchange and finally know each other better through keynote lectures and technical presentations.
