Small Modular Reactor Research and Education Consortium
The Small modular reactor Research and Education Consortium (SmrREC) led by Missouri S&T provides its members with research results to advance the design, construction and operation of SMRs by collaborating in the development of precompetitive technologies. The member-driven Consortium facilitates the establishment of the highest quality multi-disciplinary teams of researchers to support the specific needs of the Consortium, thereby advancing the entire nuclear energy sector. The Consortium also provides educational and outreach opportunities to maintain a pipeline of trained engineers and scientists needed to support the nuclear industry renaissance.
The overarching vision is “Identify and develop transformational technologies supporting Small Modular Nuclear Reactors to improve energy security and reduce climate change”. The Consortium has seven key research thrusts including:
Design and Modeling
Alternative Uses of Nuclear Energy
Education and Outreach
Missouri S&T selects its first two initiatives for funding. Article
