SMR design and operation and licensing concerns are among the key areas covered in the research venture, which was established by Ameren and Westinghouse Electric. "The consortium as a whole will work together on projects that are specific to each company," said Joseph Smith, who holds the Laufer Chair of Energy at Missouri S&T.
