Nuclear Energy Enabling Technologies (NEET)

You are here

The Nuclear Energy Enabling Technologies (NEET) program conducts research and development (R&D) and makes strategic investments in research capabilities to develop innovative and crosscutting nuclear energy technologies to resolve U.S. industry nuclear technology development issues. The Crosscutting Technology Development (CTD) subprogram focuses on innovative research that directly supports and enables the development of new, next generation reactor and fuel cycle technologies. Also, NEET includes a strong investment in modeling and simulation tools for existing and advanced reactor and fuel system technologies. Further, the program provides U.S. industry, U.S. universities, and national laboratories access to unique nuclear energy research capabilities through the Nuclear Science User Facilities (NSUF). Collectively, NEET-sponsored activities support the goals, objectives, and activities of the Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN) initiative to make these technology advancements accessible to U.S. industry through private-public partnerships. 

PROGRAM ELEMENTS

  1. Crosscutting Technology Development:
    • Advanced Sensors and Instrumentation
    • Advanced Methods for Manufacturing
    • Advanced Cooling
    • Hybrid Energy Systems
    • Cybersecurity
  2. Advanced Modeling and Simulation
  3. Nuclear Science User Facilities

AWARDS

The NEET program competitively awards most of its projects through the Consolidated Innovative Nuclear Research (CINR) Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) that is open to industry, academia and national laboratories and through the industry focused solicitation titled, “U.S. Industry Opportunities for Advanced Nuclear Technology Development.” Projects also have the opportunity to receive funding for access to Nuclear Science User Facilities if needed for research and testing. 

In addition, NEET programs award crosscutting research under the Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) program targeted to the small business community.
