The award funds two sets of activities, both designed to engage new audiences and nurture a new generation of nuclear science and security leaders. The first set of activities uses the opportunity of the Bulletin’s 70th anniversary and the upcoming 2016 Nuclear Security Summit in Chicago to engage new audiences through an exhibit at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry. The second set of activities targets next generation science and security experts to ensure they have the tools to engage policymakers and the broader public on complex challenges in clear and easily understood ways.

2013 • 2 years • International Peace & Security

"Estimating and disseminating information about the costs of nuclear reprocessing" is a joint project of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists and the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago. A user-friendly computer model allowing countries to calculate and compare current costs and advantages of different methods of fuel use and storage will be refined and tested in workshops. This tool for examining costs may help countries decide to forgo reprocessing, which would reduce risks of theft and diversion of plutonium and the threat of terrorism. Funds will be used for partial staff salaries, travels, honoraria and publication costs.
