Conferences conveying our message

Following the success of the previous ThEC10 (UK), ThEC11 (USA) and ThEC12 (China), iThEC brought together regional actors in the development of thorium energy systems in order to obtain an overview of all the activities and promote cooperation.



The newly founded international Thorium Energy Committee (iThEC) successfully organized, in partnership with iThEO, the 2013 Thorium Energy Conference, ThEC13 , at CERN, in Geneva Switzerland.

  • Scientific organisation
  • Driven by leaders in physics
  • Network of partnerships
  • Unlimited energy for all
