2024 Overview
The nuclear industry is faced with great opportunity, galvanized by the need for ambitious innovation as we work toward a global clean energy future. The Global Forum for Nuclear Innovation (GFNI 2024) will bring together change makers and cross-pollinators from across the world to help turn ‘Ambition into Action.’
The Global Forum for Nuclear Innovation brings Innovators Together to Accelerate Ambition into Action

How do you create a future that you can’t wait to arrive and to live in? Put a little differently, how do we minimize or avoid the negative effects of climate change while working towards a society improved and enhanced by technology? This is among the most significant questions that many wrestle with and one humanity is constantly trying to address. Common wisdom dictates to “begin with the end in mind,” which works well for small-scale innovations over short time horizons (1-5 years), but how do we plan for technologies that haven’t been developed or deployed yet, much less those that haven’t even been imagined? As such, when we peer further and further into the future, the outlook becomes cloudier with countless branching possibilities. One thing we do know about the future is that we need large quantities of clean energy as soon as possible to both support the growing global demand for energy and fight the negative effects of climate change.

Grand Challenges

COMING SOON — At the 2022 GFNI event in London, participants identified four Grand Challenges in areas requiring the industry’s commitment to investing in and implementing innovative approaches:

  • Operating a Lean Machine
  • Beyond Electricity
  • No Talent, No Sector
  • Safe Doesn’t Have To Be Slow

One significant focus of GFNI 2024 will be reviewing progress made in addressing these challenges.
