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.
Education, Training & Workforce Development
The Education, Training & Workforce Development Division provides communication among the academic, industrial, and governmental communities through the exchange of views and information on matters related to education, training and workforce development in nuclear and radiological science, engineering, and technology. Industry leaders, education and training professionals, and interested students work together through Society-sponsored meetings and publications, to enrich their professional development, to educate the general public, and to advance nuclear and radiological science and engineering.

Framatome and USNC team up to produce TRISO fuel at Framatome facility
Framatome Inc. and Ultra Safe Nuclear Corp. (USNC) signed an agreement on November 28 at the World Nuclear Exhibition in Paris, France, establishing a joint venture to manufacture nuclear fuel for USNC’s gas-cooled microreactor and other advanced reactor designs. Working together, the companies plan to produce commercial quantities of TRISO fuel particles and USNC’s proprietary Fully Ceramic Microencapsulated (FCM) fuel, which contains TRISO fuel particles within a ceramic fuel pellet.

Keystone of Tomorrow
University Park, Pennsylvania|The Pennsylvania State University
The theme of the 2024 ANS Student Conference is “Keystone of Tomorrow.” Given the
aggressive carbon reduction goals set by our governments and companies in the last five
years, nuclear energy has the opportunity to serve as a central technology to enable this
clean-energy vision. The keystone is the central supporting stone in an archway; without the
keystone the structure will fall. Without nuclear, we believe achieving net-zero goals is not
feasible. Policymakers and citizens around the world increasingly view nuclear energy as a
fundamental technology that will battle climate change while maintaining high standards of
living through reliable access to energy. As our society demands more of our industry, we will
need many young scientists and engineers who are skilled and impassioned; enter the ANS
By supporting this conference, you are building a bridge for students across the country to not only discuss their research, but make lasting connections with each other and leaders in government, industry, and academia like you.
Through this conference, we not only want to highlight the incredible work done by ANS Student members, but also discuss the technologies, methods, and research that will allow us to build the next generation of nuclear fission and fusion systems. In addition to energy generation, nuclear technology supports medicine, manufacturing, space travel, and other important aspects of the great human experiment. We know that nuclear science will lead to innovation in all of these spaces; as we forge ahead, we can be sure that it will form a keystone of tomorrow.
