​The Department of Energy has issued an Amendment (0004) for the Consolidated Innovative Nuclear Research (CINR) Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) DE-FOA-0001515. The purpose of the Amendment is to update the FOA document to include an update to the IRP:NE-1: Grand Challenge Problem for Nuclear Energy Workscope. The Amendment relaxes the requirement to match the number of students and faculty such that in total, the number of students and faculty supported in collaborating countries must be at least equal to those supported in the United States.

Applications are due February 15, 2017.

A copy of the Amended FOA is available here.

​From July 16-29, 2017, UC Berkeley will host the second annual Nuclear Innovation Bootcamp. Graduate and Undergraduate students in nuclear engineering, energy economics, energy policy, and other subjects will be trained for two weeks in skills essential to innovation while executing team design projects. The program will consist of a series of modules from Silicon Valley and nuclear experts; professional participants will learn side by side with the students and contribute their expertise to the student design projects. These projects will culminate in product pitches, which will be open to the public and streamed online.

This is an invitation to submit joint proposals under the United States-Euratom International Energy Research Initiative (INERI) in support of the collaboration with Euratom for the research and development (R&D) objectives of the Department of Energy's Office of Nuclear Energy (DOE-NE). 

The joint mini-proposals submitted in response to this announcement must reflect collaborative arrangements for cooperative R&D involving at least one participant from the DOE national laboratories and/or U.S. universities and one participant from Euratom. The United States and Euratom participants must be funded under separate financial support from their countries and must identify such funding in the proposal. Collaborative arrangements may involve additional U.S. and Euratom federal and non-federal organizations.​

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is awarding over $82 million in nuclear energy research, facility access, crosscutting technology development, and infrastructure awards in 28 states. In total, 93 projects were selected to receive funding that will help push innovative nuclear technologies toward commercialization and into the market. These awards provide funding for nuclear energy-related research through the Nuclear Energy University Program, Nuclear Science User Facilities, and Nuclear Energy Enabling Technology programs. In addition to financial support, a number of recipients will receive technical and regulatory assistance through the Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN) initiative.

Through NEUP, DOE is awarding more than $35 million for 48 university-led nuclear research and development projects, $15 million for 4 Integrated Research Projects, and $5 million for 17 infrastructure support awards.

DOE is also awarding nearly $7 million to support 7 nuclear energy research and development projects through the Nuclear Energy Enabling Technologies (NEET) program. NEET is also awarding 3 grants, totaling over $1 million, to support infrastructure improvements at Department of Energy national laboratories to further reactor and instrumentation research.

Additionally, DOE has selected eight university, two national laboratory, and one industry-led project that will take advantage of NSUF capabilities to investigate important nuclear fuel and material applications. DOE will fund over $9 million in facility access costs and expertise for experimental neutron and ion irradiation testing, post-irradiation examination facilities, synchrotron beamline capabilities, and technical assistance for design and analysis of experiments through the NSUF.
