Since 2007, the NEA has organised a series of workshops on structural materials for innovative nuclear systems (SMINS). The fifth meeting, held from 8‑11 July 2019 in Kyoto, Japan, was hosted by Kyoto University and the Japanese Atomic Energy Agency in co-operation with the International Atomic Energy Agency and the European Energy Research Alliance through the Joint Programme on Nuclear Materials.

The main purpose of this workshop was to stimulate an exchange of scientific information on current and innovative materials research programmes for different advanced nuclear systems with a view to identifying and developing potential synergies. The workshop covered fundamental studies, modelling and experiments on innovative structural materials including cladding materials for the range of advanced nuclear systems such as thermal/fast systems, subcritical systems, as well as fusion systems.
