The blossoming of cooperation between the U.S. and Canada
The United States and Canadian nuclear industries used to be an example of how two independent teams of engineers facing an identical problem—making electricity from uranium—could come up with completely different answers. In the 1950s, Canada began designing a reactor with tubes, heavy water, and natural uranium, while in the U.S. it was big pots of light water and enriched uranium.
But 80 years later, there is a remarkable convergence. The North American push for a new generation of nuclear reactors, mostly small modular reactors (SMRs), is becoming binational, with U.S. and Canadian companies seeking markets and regulatory certification on both sides of the border and in many cases sourcing key components in the other country.

Wednesday, Oct. 12 Banquet and Dancing
Enjoy a delicious meal and then dance the night away with Irresistible Groove! Over a decade of success has made Irresistible Groove one of the most in-demand party bands in the nation. The band includes a horn section, six vocalists, full rhythm section and the largest most diverse song list of any band in the Raleigh area — and the country.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has limited funds at its disposal to help meet the travel costs of attendance at the TopFuel 2022 Light Water Reactor Fuel Performance Conference by selected participants from IAEA Member States. Preference will be given to participants who are expected to make an important contribution to the Conference. Generally, not more than one grant will be awarded to any one country.
If organizations wish to apply for a grant on behalf of one of their participants, they should address specific requests to the Conference to this effect. Organizations should ensure that applications for grants are:
• Submitted by September 16;
• Accompanied by duly completed and signed Grant Application Form giving detailed information on the scientific qualifications of the candidate and signed by the head of the applicant’s organization.
Applications which do not comply with the above conditions cannot be considered.
The grants awarded will be in the form of a lump sum, usually covering part of the travel cost of attendance.
