— Novel Instrumentation and Sensors for Nuclear Fuel Cycle Monitoring
The second ETI Annual Summer School was virtually held on July 12 – 15, 2021. In this 4-day program, radiation detection and nuclear fuel cycle monitoring were explored. Lab demonstrations and virtual tours were conducted. Over 110 registrants participated this program.
Innovation is exploration of uncertain and unfamiliar space. In ETI consortium, we place a special emphasis on innovation through our research, education of the next generation of scientists, and broad outreach activities. Reflecting on the achievements of the past year in ETI consortium, this newsletter highlights a combination of creativity, resourcefulness, and discipline leading the success of various initiatives.
Thank you for your contribution to the team, which will hopefully thrive beyond the ETI lifespan, and look forward to the continuation of this fruitful and stimulating collaboration!
The core mission of the Consortium for Enabling Technologies and Innovation (ETI) is to direct the multidisciplinary research and innovation that enable the technologies to train the next-generation of human capital, and to bridge the gap between the university basic research and NNSA national laboratories’ mission-specific applications. The ETI Consortium is composed of 14 institutions of higher education and 12 national laboratories committed to promoting the spirit of collaborative intelligence.
The overarching goal of this Consortium is to create a research and education environment to support cross-cutting technologies across three core disciplines: the umbrella of (1) computer and engineering science research specifically in a form of machine learning and high performance computing (HPC) will support and enhance (2) advanced manufacturing and (3) nuclear detection technologies.
We are looking to employ predictive strategies to enhance our understanding of tomorrow’s needs in nuclear nonproliferation. The core of the research expenditures is directed at student education and support in order to grow the next generation of nonproliferation scientists with strong connections to national laboratories.
