INTRODUCTION GATEWAY FOR ACCELERATED INNOVATION IN NUCLEAR The mission of the GAIN initiative is to provide the nuclear energy industry with access to the technical, regulatory, and financial support necessary to move advanced nuclear technologies toward commercialization, while ensuring the continued reliable and economic operation of the existing nuclear reactor fleet. GAIN offers a single point of access to the broad range of capabilities across the Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratory complex. DOE has invested billions of dollars to build and maintain expertise and infrastructure within the national laboratory system. This vast capability is being leveraged via GAIN to support commercialization of new advanced nuclear technologies.
