Over 100 non-industrial organisations call for a just assessment of nuclear energy in the EU Taxonomy of Sustainable Finance. On 24 April 2020, the SNETP Secretariat sent a letter to Vice-presidents of the Commission Frans Timmermans and Valdis Dombrovskis, as well as to the EU Commissioner for Energy, Kadri Simson, calling for a just and timely assessment of nuclear energy in the EU Taxonomy of Sustainable Finance . The letter, signed by over a hundred European non-industrial organizations, recalls the need to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. To reach that goal, nuclear energy, along with renewables, should be the backbone of a carbon-free European power system. It requests that the decisions to include/exclude nuclear from EU taxonomy must be science and fact based (not political or ideological).

Creating a real get-together
This year all our conferences have been cancelled or postponed, but, as promised, we are working with our partners worldwide to make the European Research Reactor Conference from 11. – 15. October 2020 in Helsinki, Finland, a real Gathering of the Research Reactor Community.
We would like to create an event that offers enriched knowledge exchange and networking opportunities. All currently accepted authors of the European Research Reactor Conference will have the opportunity to update and amend their contributions and include new findings and developments.
Koronavirusepidemiasta johtuen Suomen Atomiteknillisen Seuran vuosikokous järjestettiin poikkeuksellisesti ainoastaan etäyhteydellä maaliskuun 18. päivänä. Vuosikokouksen osallistujia kirjattiin 16 henkeä, mutta pelkästään puhelimitse osallistuneiden määrää ei voitu varmentaa.
