The nuclear industry has been reinvigorated with advanced designs and developments that will cater to new users in space-missions, accelerator-based systems, used-fuel, desalination, and shipping, in addition to the existing power industry. This development of nuclear technologies in innovative applications has exposed new needs and gaps which need to be addressed to deliver robust products. This session will:
1. Increase awareness of the US Nuclear Data Program (USNDP);
2. Discuss emerging nuclear data needs to enable current innovations and inspire future ones;
3. Discuss ongoing projects relevant to the audience; and
4. Provide information on how the community can contribute.
