Sodium-cooled Fast Reactor (SFR) System Steering Committee (SSC) Meeting
The 18th Generation IV International Forum (GIF) SFR SSC meeting took place in Ispra, Italy on 10 April 2015 and was hosted by the Joint Research Centre (Euratom). Project Management Board (PMB) representatives from the host organization, SSC delegates and observers from member countries (China, France, EU, Japan, Korea, Russia and the United States) participated in this meeting. The discussions were focussed on SFR development and activities in the five PMBs (System Integration and Assessment, Safety and Operation, Advanced Fuel, Component Design and Balance-of-plant, and Global Actinide Cycle International Demonstration), R&D progress, Annual Work Plan 2015, the status of the project arrangement amendments for membership extension and interaction with other GIF bodies (Policy Group, Expert Group, Methodology Working Groups and the Task Force). The SFR SSC members also considered the extension of the SFR System Arrangement, which will expire in February 2016.
