Nuclear Safety Research and Development (NSR&D) Program
As part of its May 2011 re-organization, the Office of Health, Safety and Security (HSS) created the Nuclear Safety Research and Development (NSR&D) Program within the Office of Nuclear Safety to provide corporate-level leadership supporting nuclear safety research and development throughout the Department of Energy (DOE).
HSS's NSR&D Program collaborates with the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) and DOE Program Offices to (1) develop mechanisms for effectively sharing information on nuclear safety research and development activities and results, and (2) seek cost effective means to perform nuclear safety research and development that may have benefit DOE-wide and/or to multiple Program Offices. The NSR&D Program also solicits input from the Nuclear Safety and Security Council (chaired by Associate Deputy Secretary Melvin Williams with membership of senior management from each of the Program Offices).
