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.

With a growing focus on environmental justice, the Biden Administration has worked on a range of issues related to the environment and social equity that impact the nuclear and broader energy industry. In 2021, the Administration shared the Justice 40 initiative, part of an Executive Order requiring 40% of the benefit of federal spending on climate and energy to go to disadvantaged communities. This panel discussion will bring together government, academic and industry experts to explore the Justice 40 initiative, its purpose and implementation, and opportunities for the nuclear sector to align with this initiative and broader environmental justice efforts.
