These meetings were hosted by the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA).
The group extensively discussed proposals on the assessment of design tracks: Loop SFR Design Track N°1a: JSFR (JAEA), Pool SFR Design Track N°2a: KALIMER (KAERI), Pool SFR Design Track N°2b: ESFR (EURATOM), and Small Modular SFR Design Track N°3a: AFR-100 (USDOE). China and the Russian Federation started a self-evaluation of the CFR1200 and BN-1200 design tracks. The SFR SSC updated the R&D list and reviewed reports from the PMB's.
