Australia has officially joined an international group focused on developing future nuclear energy systems.

The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation has been welcomed into the Generation IV International Forum Framework agreement,  which aims to develop next-generation nuclear power systems, and which ANSTO calls "a potential game-changer in global energy creation".
