ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
The division's objectives are to promote the advancement of knowledge and understanding of the fundamental physical phenomena characterizing nuclear reactors and other nuclear systems. The division encourages research and disseminates information through meetings and publications. Areas of technical interest include nuclear data, particle interactions and transport, reactor and nuclear systems analysis, methods, design, validation and operating experience and standards. The Wigner Award heads the awards program.

Can nuclear power plants prosper in the grid of 2030 or 2035, when new wind and solar farms will make electricity prices even more volatile? Can plants install energy storage that will help them keep running at full power, 24/7, to ride out times of surplus and sell their energy only when prices are high?
The International Committee's responsibility is to oversee ANS's role in regarding potential affiliations, liaison, and cooperative agreements with other technical societies throughout the world; foster the exchange of information on nuclear energy among ANS and other international organizations; and help create Society Local Sections outside the United States, where appropriate. In addition, the committee cooperates with national societies outside the United States interested in designation as Affiliated National Societies, assisting them in the preparation of a petition, and in other organizational and operating procedures. The committee's mission also includes bringing value to ANS members by providing information on the activities and opportunities international nuclear energy societies offer to them.
