Oppenheimer Project

The Oppenheimer Project will take a three-pronged approach to propagate JRO’s thoughts and values and apply his advice for impactful use of nuclear technology:


Publish thought pieces to widen the reach of JRO’s thoughts and values; participating in public media projects to improve understanding of JRO’s legacy and increase visibility of The Oppenheimer Project; Convene influential experts and supporters to refine Project objectives and strategies, in particular those at the intersection of nuclear security and energy transition.


Support relevant advocacy and research organizations, hold convenings with influential experts; active lobbying to increase international cooperation on atomic energy regulation and influence non-partisan US nuclear energy policy.


There is not enough investment in innovation for a rapid and just energy transition. The Oppenheimer Project will create an investment vehicle to invest in energy transition with a particular focus on nuclear energy solutions.
