History of High Temperature Reactor Meeting

The sole international conference focused on high-temperature gas-cooled reactor (HTGR) technology including heat applications

Inaugurated in 2002 by the European High Temperature Reactor Technology Network HTR-TN at Petten, the Netherlands, successive meetings were held:

  • 2004 on the Asian continent in Beijing, China
  • 2006 on the African continent in Johannesburg, South Africa
