    ICAPP 2015 will address advances in nuclear power plants in a broad sense, not only covering technological progress in reactors and associated nuclear fuel cycles, but also extending to broader applications of nuclear power, such a cogeneration and hybridization with over low-carbon power sources to displace fossil fuels in applications beyond electricity generation in the housing, transportation and industry sectors.

    The fundamental knowledge and the awareness gap which exists within many key policy areas is indeed a major barrier to the implementation of both EU policy, and technology. Although the importance of this issue is recognised, the investment of manpower and finances remains relatively small compared to the investments in technology development, which is often never implemented due to public discourse. Engaging the general public requires a better understanding and communication among the economic, political, social and scientific actors.

    The 5th High Temperature Reactor Technology conference, hosted in Prague from 18 to 20 October, addresses pragmatic approaches to two of the world’s pressing challenges, climate change and security of low-carbon energy supply. The JRC Institute for Energy (IE) has co-ordinated the technical programme with more than 180 presentations, provided many of the session co-ordinators, and presents its work in this area at the conference exhibition.
