In the United States and around the world, innovative companies are pioneering new forms of clean and safe advanced nuclear power generation, but their ultimate success will hinge on the performance of our nuclear regulatory process. How can advanced nuclear plants be licensed in a timely manner? How are companies overcoming licensing hurdles to build a credible business model? The panelists will discuss how public-private collaboration in the regulatory arena is possible, from pre-application engagement and cooperative efforts to right-sizing review and the safety case for new nuclear applications.
