Joint recommendations for the nuclear energy future

In the later part of the year 2016 the Chinese Academy of Engineering and the French Academies (National Academy of Technologies of France and French Academy of Sciences) set up a joint Franco-Chinese study group.
Its general objective was to prepare a common position paper to distil policies and technology options, including safety and waste management, for making nuclear power generation a component of future energy mixes in countries with the appropriate potential for implementing this energy.

TECHNOLOGIES AND INNOVATION TERRITORIES

Where is the economic dynamism, where is wealth created, what are the drivers of innovation? Where are we today in terms of territorial dynamics and innovation dynamics?
The National Academy of Technologies of France devoted its 2017 annual seminar (11 and 12 October) to studying this vital subject for France. This seminar shows that at a time when France has experienced both a territorial reform (NOTRe law of 2015) and a metropolitan development of (MAPTAM law of 2014), and multiple initiatives aimed at developing its potential for competitiveness and innovation, the challenges of innovation in the territories are still fundamental.
