The mission of the Nuclear Energy Enabling Technologies (NEET) program is to develop crosscutting technologies that directly support and complement the Office of Nuclear Energy’s (NE) development of new and advanced reactor concepts and fuel cycle technologies.
The program will focus on innovative research relevant to multiple reactor and fuel cycle concepts that offer the promise of dramatically improved performance.
Crosscutting Technology Development (CTD) include the development of advanced reactor materials, research on innovative nuclear manufacturing methods, new sensor technologies and creative approaches to further reduce proliferation risks. Energy Innovation Hub for Modeling & Simulation (HUB) will provide crosscutting support to facilitate future improvement of nuclear technologies. National Scientific User Facility (NSUF) provides access to unique research facilities and equipment that would otherwise be unavailable to universities and industry involved in testing and experimentation to further nuclear science and engineering research goals.
