In 2017, ANS announced the Nuclear Grand Challenges. These nine challenges, put forth by the members and Technical Divisions of ANS, identify cross-cutting technical issues to be resolved by 2030 to help address the economic, sociological, or political concerns facing nuclear energy. Five years later, where are we? In addition to highlighting recent successes, we challenge our panelists and audience alike to consider actions needed to move forward. We will explore the role each of us has to play, from students to technical and industry leaders, in making real progress on the grand challenges of nuclear energy.
