The webinar series has been momentarily suspended due to a change in the webinar service provider.

The GIF Education and Training Task Force has organised a webinar series which features speakers from around the world, explaining why GEN IV reactor systems are crucial for the sustainability of the nuclear fuel cycle. The webinar series was launched with a presentation by former GIF Chair John Kelly on “Atoms for Peace – the Next Generation” and will be followed by monthly webinars.
