Bhabha Atomic Research Centre DAE in association with BRNS will be organizing a conference under the thematic title of "Indigenous Nuclear Fuel Program in India: Achievements, Status and Prospects (INFPIN – 2019)" at the DAE Convention Centre, Anushaktinagar, Mumbai from 31st January to 2nd February, 2019. The scope of the conference covers wide range of scientific and engineering activities starting from exploration of nuclear minerals, mining & milling, nuclear refining, fuel design & manufacturing, characterisation, quality control and more.

This conference is being organised on the 60th anniversary of the first nuclear grade uranium metal ingot production in India way back in January, 1959. The purpose of the conference is to create a common platform to discuss the various technological achievements in the field, status and activities of present and also the strategy and planning for the future. It will create an excellent opportunity for the researchers and professionals working in diversified fields to discuss their expertise, achievements and challenges on a common platform and also to interact with the national level experts.
