Can we make nuclear energy relevant in time to mitigate climate change?

This week’s NERS Colloquium will feature Ning Li of the Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation, which is commercializing “Nuclear Energy 2.0” with fundamentally safe and manufactured systems that lower costs and can restore public confidence in the technology. Dr. Li will discuss how researchers and industry can rejuvenate nuclear power quickly enough for it to make a major contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

His talk as part of this year’s Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences (NERS) colloquium series will be held on Friday November 8, 4:00 – 5:00 pm, in White Auditorium in the Cooley Building.
