(2)-① Keynote Speech
Ms. DUNCAN, Chairman of the Steering Group of the International Framework for Nuclear Energy Cooperation (IFNEC), gave a keynote speech entitled "IFNEC Initiatives: The Importance of Peaceful Use of Nuclear Energy and Regional Development". First, Ms. Duncan explained IFNEC principle and objectives, the current organization and the outline of activities of each activity group. She stated the following four priority areas of activities IFNEC will pursue in 2022 onwards (1) To promote correct understanding of nuclear energy across regions and generations in the community through clear and concise communication about nuclear energy, (2) To Establish funding to support the peaceful use of nuclear energy, watching the possibility of taxonomy, (3) To introduce and expand "Gender Balance", being widely well recognized around the world, within the relevant organizations of nuclear energy, and (4) To promote technological innovation regarding to nuclear energy including SMRs through the collaboration between regions and international organizations. As a conclusion, it is necessary to have clear awareness of climate change issue and the necessity of resolutions first. In order to achieve this, she mentioned that it is important to widely share knowledge and experience of nuclear energy, and the resources on which it is based among all relevant stakeholders, to organize and widespread correct knowledge and understanding of nuclear energy in a simple and organized manner, and to unite strategic partners who share the same objectives.

(2) -① Keynote Speech
Then, Dr. UESAKA Mitsuru, Chairman of the Japan Atomic Energy Commission (JAEC) , gave a keynote speech entitled "Medical Radioisotopes through the Best Mix of Research Reactors and Accelerators". Although the demand for radiopharmaceuticals for diagnostic imaging and cancer treatment is increasing worldwide, Japan presently relies on import of many medical radioisotopes such as 99Mo. If we look overseas, efforts are made to secure stable supply in US and Europe. 99Mo/99mTc, most commonly used in the SPECT examination, is currently produced at 6 research reactors in the world, but all of them are being deteriorated, and there is a concern that there will be a serious supply shortage in the near future. In terms of stable supply, although it is desirable to have the best-mix of global supply and local production, global supply is highly vulnerable. Meanwhile, since the patients of prostate cancer travel around the world in search of 225Ac cure, we should establish a system to move 225Ac instead. Although alternative manufacturing methods of 225Ac research reactors are being explored around the world, the fast reactor "JOYO" will be re-operated in a few years in Japan and there are expectation of 225Ac production. Furthermore, research and development of 225Ac production by cyclotron is in progress at the Quantum Science and Technology Research Organization (QST) and Nihon Medi-Physics Co., Ltd. And in November, as part of Japan's growth strategy approved by the cabinet, an expert meeting was formed under JAEC with the aim of domestic production of RI. He addressed that there is an immediate need to set up an international supply chain collaborated with those global supply source.

(3) Round Table Discussion
Dr. NAKANISHI Tomoko, a member of JAEC, chaired a discussion, and Thailand, Japan and Australia made lead speeches on the main topic of this meeting, "Enhancing the utilization of research reactors, accelerators and their related technology" from the perspectives of state policies, technologies, and production (RI Production) followed by a Q&A session and discussion. And a summary of speeches of three nations are respectively as follows;
Thailand (TINT) : Under the national policy which aims to shift from technical user to technical creators, they operated new facility of 5Mev(x-ray) and 3/10Mev(electron beam) in 2019 and conducted irradiation to over 1600 tons of foods and over 360 tons of herbal supplements and pharmaceuticals in 2021 along with the Bio-Circular-Green (BCG) strategy. Also, they continue to work to promote the radiation effect and encourage people to use it against small-medium enterprises. Moreover, they reported about the 30Mev cyclotron facility for the purpose of pharmaceutical production will be completed in 2022.
Dr. OIGAWA Hiroyuki, Executive Director of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) from Japan, reported about research reactors (8 bases) in Japan for the purpose of academic research, industrial use of neutrons, human development, and development of next generation reactor and its current operation plan as well as the usage plan. The JRR-3, which had been suspended due to comply with new regulatory standard was re-operated in this February, and is currently used for neutron research and RI manufacturing. Along with the J-PARK, a high intensity proton accelerator, number of technological innovation will be born. Moreover, fast neutron irradiation, which is produced from an experimental fast reactor "JOYO", is scheduled to re-operated, will be used for various application for related technologies.
ANSTO from Australia team introduced wide range of activities of the organizations related to nuclear energies. In addition, they explained the ANSTO's accumulation of knowledge and present condition about nuclear medicine, which has been remarkably developed due to the emergence of new radionuclides. And among the varieties of radionuclides currently are produced in Australia, 99Mo, 177Lu, 131I, 153Sm, and 99Mo/99mTc are produced in an industrial scale, they explained. In terms of radionuclides used in theranostics, although only 177Lu are produced in an industrial scale in Australia at this moment, efforts are being made in order to expand supply capability in this field, where demand is growing, they reported.

(4) Announcement of FNCA Breakthrough Prize Winner and Commemorative Speech
