What is NRIC?

The National Reactor Innovation Center (NRIC) accelerates the deployment of advanced nuclear energy through its mission to inspire stakeholders and the public, empower innovators, and deliver successful outcomes. NRIC is a national program led by Idaho National Laboratory, allowing collaborators to harness the world-class capabilities of the U.S. National Laboratory System. We are charged with and committed to demonstrating advanced reactors by the end of 2025.

NRIC accelerates technology from proof of concept to proof of operation by allowing innovators to leverage the U.S. government’s investment in nuclear energy research, development, demonstration, and deployment. By bridging world-leading laboratory Infrastructure and expertise with the promise of visionaries working to commercialize new nuclear energy systems, NRIC is enabling a new era of clean, affordable, reliable energy.
