ASME's Small Modular and Micro Reactor Summit program provides the opportunity for executive leaders in the SMMR nuclear technology industries to network with utility, regulatory, and financial organizations, to exchange ideas, to share lessons learned, and to establish strategic relationships. The time is now to develop newer, smaller, easy to site and construct nuclear power plants and let this high availability source of CO2 free power help us solve our climate dilemma.

The 2020 program features:

  • Training/Workshop
  • Technical Sessions
  • Panels
  • Networking Opportunities
  • And more!

Small Modular and Micro Reactors Summit program details are available here.
