This panel will provide an update on the status of the Versatile Test Reactor (VTR) project. The VTR is a sodium-cooled fast test reactor being developed with support from the DOE-NE and could become critical as early as 2026. It will provide accelerated irradiation testing capabilities to the entire advanced reactor community through allowing flexible testing under a multitude of environments. During this panel, multiple stakeholders will share their perspectives on the project, including views from the DOE, NRC, GEH, and national laboratories. This panel will also offer an opportunity for attendees to ask their questions.
