Abstract: On 14 September 2017, Australia deposited its instrument of accession to the Generation IV International Forum (GIF) Framework Agreement for International Collaboration on Research and Development of Generation IV Nuclear Energy Systems with the GIF secretariat at the OECD. The GIF is a co-operative international endeavour, which was established to carry out the research and development needed to establish the feasibility and performance capabilities of the next generation of nuclear energy systems. Australia became the 14th member of the GIF on 22 June 2016 when it signed the GIF Charter. Acceding to the Framework Agreement enables Australia to become actively engaged in R&D projects related to Generation IV 2 ANA2017 Conference, Sydney, NSW, 6 Oct 2017 systems, particularly in R&D projects on advanced materials. The story of Australia’s engagement with GIF will be described and the scope and nature of its contributions to future GIF R&D including which of the six GIF Advanced Reactor systems Australia will support will be described together with the role of ANSTO as Australia’s implementing agent within GIF.
