4th CORDEL Regional Workshop, May 2022

CORDEL Regional Workshops

The World Nuclear Association held its fourth event in its CORDEL (Cooperation in Reactor Design Evaluation and Licensing) regional workshop series on 18-20 May 2022 in Lyon, France, in conjunction with EDF, Framatome and EUR.
The workshop focused on harmonization to support the operation and new build of NPPs including SMRs, welcoming participants from across the world from industry and regulatory bodies. The workshop series was launched in 2016 by the World Nuclear Association’s CORDEL Working Group, and its Long-term Operation Task Force. The outputs from the workshops are used to help address regional issues, and where necessary, inform the Association’s own global programme of work.
The first workshop was held in Chicago, USA, hosted by Exelon on 1-2 June 2016; the second was in Moscow, Russia on 25-26 October 2016, hosted by Rosatom; and the third in Shanghai, China, hosted by SNERDI on 15-16 May 2018.
