INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE "MATERIAL ISSUES IN DESIGN, MANUFACTURING AND OPERATION OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS EQUIPMENT" (MAINSTREAM)

 

 MAINSTREAM - THE FOURTEENTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE "MATERIAL ISSUES IN DESIGN, MANUFACTURING AND OPERATION OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS EQUIPMENT"

Since 1991 every two years CRISM «Prometey» and St. Petersburg Society of Science and Technology have been holding the International Conference «Material Issues in Design, Manufacturing and Operation of Nuclear Power Plants Equipment». Since 2016 the Conference was given a short name - MAINSTREAM.

 

The high scientific level of the Conference is ensured by the active participation of the leading scientists and experts involved in the field from Russia and other countries. This event gives anopportunity for its participants to organize mutually beneficial discussions, exchange experiences and ideas, establish creative and business contacts.

 

The Series of Conferences brought together specialists from Russia, UK, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Finland, Sweden, Japan, USA, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Ukraine and other countries. In the past years our Conference has been internationally recognized and held in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and Joint Research Centre of the European Commission.
