The Millennial Nuclear Caucus being held April 4, 2019, at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is part of a series of events hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Nuclear Energy (DOE-NE) to bring together the next generation of leaders in nuclear innovation. The event features discussion on the path forward for the nuclear industry and the role innovative technology will play. Participants represent the full spectrum of the nuclear field, including young leaders supporting the existing fleet, those designing small modular and advanced reactors, and those advocating for a thriving nuclear future.

DOE-NE encourages all young people interested in nuclear energy, advanced science and technology solutions, or the future of clean energy to attend and join in the conversation. We all have a stake in the future of nuclear.

Attendance is free, but registration is required. If you can’t join us in person, please join the conversation on social media using #NuclearVisionary. See you April 4!
