OBJECTIVES

The general objective is to provide participants with an up-to-date, basic knowledge on the six concepts selected for the 4thgeneration of nuclear systems (SFR, LFR, GFR, V/HTR, SCWR, MSR):
• describe the main characteristics sof each concept,
• formulate their design, performance and safety aspects,

• discuss the technical challenges they are faced with for future development.

AUDIENCE
Professionals, researchers and students with an interest in a global view of on the 4th generation of nuclear reactors.
