The course aims at giving a brief, but effective introduction to the most important applications of nuclear energy to power production. Being a course for PhD students, besides the description of the available nuclear technologies, it aims at illustrating the future evolution of nuclear energy. The key topics that are currently the focus of the research activities worldwide will be highlighted, and the peculiarities of the most relevant research fields currently open are illustrated. The course is recommended for PhD students in Energetics addressing both nuclear and other power production technologies. It provides a global view of the nuclear engineering research field, useful also for students already having a nuclear background and working in this field for the PhD program. After following this course, all the students will know the generalities of the existing nuclear plants contributing to the electricity production, the future technologies currently under development and the technological issues which are being addressed in the nuclear field.
