NTI has partnered with the Russian Center for Energy and Security Studies (CENESS) to launch a high-level dialogue on the future of US-Russia nuclear cooperation. The dialogue brings together leading nuclear experts from the United States and Russia to develop a menu of practical proposals for future cooperation in five thematic areas: nuclear science, nuclear energy, nuclear environmental remediation, nuclear security, and nuclear safety.
Participants in the Dialogue convened in Moscow, Russia on February 24-26 2016 to explore opportunities for prospective U.S.-Russia nuclear cooperation. Participants and speakers included NTI CEO and Co-Chairman Senator Sam Nunn, NTI President Emeritus Charles Curtis, former Deputy Secretary of Energy and President of Centrus Energy Daniel Poneman, Rosatom Deputy CEO Ambassador Nikolay Spasskiy, Deputy Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov, and U.S. Ambassador to Russia John Tefft.
A joint NTI-CENESS report summarizing the conclusions of the Dialogue will be published in the summer of 2016 and briefed to key stakeholders in the United States and Russia.
