newcleo and Politecnico di Torino

Following a highly successful initial collaboration, we have extended and expanded our partnership with Politecnico di Torino.

We are delighted to announce that we have signed a five-year agreement with Politecnico di Torino (PoliTo) that will see us partner closely on research and development, joint tenders and research programs, and the promotion of MSc thesis, PhDs and internships.

PoliTo, considered among the best engineering and technology universities in the world, is an ideal partner for newcleo. Together, our strategic collaboration will drive innovation on a local and international scale.

We are also set to work together across fields such as thermal-hydraulics, reactor physics, fluid-induced vibrations, structural materials and coatings development and qualification, thermomechanical analysis, and safety analysis, to name just a few.

With Turin also the location of newcleo’s research and development centre, our enhanced partnership will strengthen our ties with our Italian home as we look to engage the community by organising debates, seminars, and interventions on ad hoc topics from PoliTo’s professors and key newcleo players.

Professor Giuliana Mattiazzo, PoliTo’s Vice Rector for Technology Transfer says: “We are very happy to strengthen our partnership with newcleo. Our collaboration began in January 2022 with a joint R&D and technology transfer on the study of Gen-IV reactors, with our relationship now extending to the development of innovative teaching initiatives and the dissemination of research results.” 

newcleo COO Elisabeth Rizzotti comments: “newcleo’s collaboration with an institution like Politecnico di Torino fits perfectly with our ambitions to develop safe, clean, and sustainable nuclear energy by building innovative Generation IV reactors. We believe in the importance of greater integration with the academic world, given the results that can be achieved by working together on development and innovation, counting on highly qualified resources motivated by the contribution that each of us can bring to a better energy future.”
