INL announces NRIC-focused webinar in industry engagement series
Idaho National Laboratory’s Small Business Program kicked off the “INL Industry Engagement” webinar series with a discussion on broader economic partnership opportunities with various INL programs. For the next session, the program will continue focusing on partnership opportunities, highlighting the National Reactor Innovation Center (NRIC) led by the laboratory.
Authorized by the Nuclear Energy Innovation Capabilities Act, NRIC was established in August 2019 to provide resources to test, demonstrate and assess the performance of new nuclear technologies – essential steps that must be completed before new advanced fission systems are available commercially. Among NRIC’s goals is to accelerate the deployment of advanced nuclear energy technology.
The webinar, which will take place from 9 to 10 a.m. MDT (11 a.m. to noon EDT) Wednesday, July 8, will feature a presentation from NRIC Director Dr. Ashley Finan, discussing her vision for the program. The scheduling information is:
