The 2019 edition of the International Congress on Advances in Nuclear Power Plants (ICAPP) took place in Juan-les-Pins (France), from 12-15 May 2019. On this occasion, the GEMINI+ project was presented by explaining its main goal, expected objectives and impacts to pave the way for an early deployment of industrial nuclear cogeneration in Europe. The full presentation is available by
The HTR programme had been recently accepted to be included among the so called Polish “National Smart Specialisations” list. Being on the NSS list is a necessary condition to get European structural funds. Thus, the door is open to apply for financing construction of 10 MWth experimental HTR at NCBJ.

The Polish Minister of energy published in November 2018 a draft version of the PEP2040. This strategic document titled “Energy Policy in Poland until 2040” addresses the most important challenges that Polish energy sector will be facing in the next two decades and includes the main target, key directions, as well as corresponding measures to be implemented in the short-term
Research and development on High Temperature Gas-cooled Reactor (HTGR) in Japan started since late 1960s. Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) in cooperation with Japanese industries has researched and developed system design, fuel, graphite, metallic material, reactor engineering, high temperature components, high temperature irradiation and post irradiation test of fuel and graphite, high temperature heat application and so on. Construction of
The HTR 2018 conference took place in Warsaw (Poland) from 10-12 October. Since 2002, the International Conferences on High Temperature Reactor Technology have aimed to accelerate R&D on High-Temperature Gas Reactor (HTGR) and heat application technologies. After Weihai (2014) and Las Vegas (2016), the 2018 edition was the opportunity to draw a link with the Polish Nuclear Programme and European
