TRIUMF Collaborators Receive Gen-IV Energy Technologies Program Grant

26 February 2009

Imagine receiving $100,000 for three consecutive years to work on an idea that you've proposed. For Paul Percival, Khashayar Ghandi and Craig Stuart that dream has become a reality.  In July 2008, NSERC announced a new grant program with Natural Resources Canada and AECL Ltd. under the Generation IV Energy Technologies Program.  This program is meant to promote the research and development of a Supercritical-Water-Cooled Nuclear Power Reactor. Percival (Simon Fraser University), Ghandi (Mount. Allison University), and Stuart (AECL) became the successful coapplicants for a NSERC Collaborative Research and Development Grant this year, valued at $100,000 per annum for three years.

This is a significant step forward for Canada as one of the 13 members that represents the Generation IV International Forum. Their mission is to lead the collaborative efforts of the world's leading nuclear technology
