Purpose: The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Nuclear Energy (NE) conducts crosscutting nuclear energy research and development (R&D) and associated infrastructure support activities to develop innovative technologies that offer the promise of dramatically improved performance for advanced reactors and fuel cycle concepts while maximizing the impact of DOE resources.

NE program-related areas: Fuel Cycle Research and Development (FCR&D), Reactor Concepts Research, Development and Demonstration (RCRD&D), and Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation (NEAMS). NEET CTD supports national laboratory, university and industry led crosscutting research in the areas of reactor materials, advanced sensors and instrumentation, and advanced methods for manufacturing.

Pre-applications are a mandatory requirement for Program and/or Mission Supporting Projects for U.S. universities, national laboratories, or industry led projects. Pre-applications are not required for Program Directed IRPs.
