The Atlantic Council—in partnership with the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) — is pleased to host a private workshop and reception on Wednesday, May 22, 2024 from 7:00 – 9:00 PMThe event will take place at the Mission Plaza at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center (1501 Gaylord Trail, Grapevine, TX 76051).

The event, hosted on the sidelines of the 2024 ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit, will convene a gathering of VC investors and nuclear innovators—many ARPA-E performers—to discuss next generation technologies related to the backend of the fuel cycle and the recycling of the nation’s inventory of used nuclear fuel.

The convening will serve as a forum for reflection on the nuclear innovation showcased at the ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit. Registration to attend the ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit is not required. However, registering will provide you with access to the Technology Showcase, panels, and other pieces of Summit programming (all hosted at the Gaylord) that would enhance our discussions at the reception.
