“The InnoEnergy EMINE program provided me with essential knowledge that I’ve used in formulating the winning research proposal, and that I now use on an everyday basis in Seaborg Technologies, a science and research heavy start-up working on developing next-generation nuclear power reactors. Moreover, the format of the EMINE program allowed me to perform my internship at PSI in Switzerland on the topic of multi-physics simulations of molten salt reactors, from which a lot of the inspiration for the research proposal was sourced.”
– Eirik Eide Pettersen
Eirik is a co-founder to the Copenhagen-based startup Seaborg Technologies, which is developing an advanced thorium-based molten salt reactor (MSR), has received a grant from Innovation Fund Denmark (IFD), a move that marks the first Danish investment into nuclear fission research since the country’s ban on nuclear power in 1985.
