Earlier this month Corporate Risk Associates Limited (CRA) Junior Consultant Bernat Cirera attended the SAMOFAR Final Meeting in Delft, Netherlands.
SAMOFAR (Safety Assessment of the Molten Salt Fast Reactor) is one of the major Research and Innovation projects in the Horizon 2020 Euratom research programme.
This year saw the Final Meeting, where the main results from the 4 –year research project were presented. Speakers invited from China, Canada, the USA and other nations shared updates on the future of Molten Salt Reactors (MSRs). The meeting provided a perfect opportunity to learn more about the technology and to meet with the MSR experts (industry and academia) from all over the world.
Bernat commented: “SAMOFAR was a fantastic opportunity to meet with bright and passionate people from all over the globe whose work is focussed on Safety and Molten Salt Reactors. I’ve not only learned a lot from each presentation, I also enjoyed participating in the enthusiastic debates that followed on from each presentation.”
CRA is committed to understanding and cracking the Safety and Risk challenges of new technologies. By attending meetings such as SAMOFAR and collaborating in international Research and Development projects, CRA is able to support technology vendors; specifically helping them to address Safety, Security and Environmental concerns.
