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.
Aerospace Nuclear Science & Technology
Organized to promote the advancement of knowledge in the use of nuclear science and technologies in the aerospace application. Specialized nuclear-based technologies and applications are needed to advance the state-of-the-art in aerospace design, engineering and operations to explore planetary bodies in our solar system and beyond, plus enhance the safety of air travel, especially high speed air travel. Areas of interest will include but are not limited to the creation of nuclear-based power and propulsion systems, multifunctional materials to protect humans and electronic components from atmospheric, space, and nuclear power system radiation, human factor strategies for the safety and reliable operation of nuclear power and propulsion plants by non-specialized personnel and more.

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.
