The French Embassy in Sweden, the Institut français de Suède and the Royal Institute of Technology KTH cordially invite you to a research seminar dedicated to Future Nuclear Systems. Come and meet French and Swedish experts to discuss future challenges and opportunities of Gen-IV systems!


The seminar will consist in plenary sessions dealing with different types of Gen-IV systems: Sodium-cooled fast reactors including ASTRID, the European research reactor JHR and the contribution of Swedish universities to its implementation, Molten Salt Reactor (MSR), Lead-cooled Fast Reactor (LFR), Fuel cycle and Actinide extraction (GANEX)…


This seminar is organized in parallel to the high-level seminar on energy, where policy-makers, experts and business representatives of Sweden and France will join up.


Participation is free of charge but registration is mandatory due to a limited number of seats.

  • Date: December 3, 2013, from 1 pm to 5.30 pm
  • Place: KTH, Kapellet, Brinellvägen 8, Stockholm
  • Registration by email: jean-christophe.pantel(at)
  • Deadline: Nov. 28.
