Abstract Expert panels comprised of subject matter experts identified at the U.S. National Laboratories (SNL, ANL, INL, ORNL, LBL, and BNL), universities (University of Wisconsin and Ohio State University), international agencies (IRSN, CEA, JAEA, KAERI, and JRC-IE) and private consultation companies (Radiation Effects Consulting) were assembled to perform a gap analysis for sodium fast reactor licensing. Expert-opinion elicitation was performed to qualitatively assess the current state of sodium fast reactor technologies. Five independent gap analyses were performed resulting in the following topical reports: Accident Initiators and Sequences (i.e., Initiators/Sequences Technology Gap Analysis), Sodium Technology Phenomena (i.e., Advanced Burner Reactor Sodium Technology Gap Analysis), Fuels and Materials (i.e., Sodium Fast Reactor Fuels and Materials: Research Needs), Source Term Characterization (i.e., Advanced Sodium Fast Reactor Accident Source Terms: Research Needs), and Computer Codes and Models (i.e., Sodium Fast Reactor Gaps Analysis of Computer Codes and Models for Accident Analysis and Reactor Safety). Volume II of the Sodium Research Plan consolidates the five gap analysis reports produced by each expert panel, wherein the importance of the identified phenomena and necessities of further experimental research and code development were addressed. The findings from these five reports comprised the basis for the analysis in Sodium Fast Reactor Research Plan Volume I.
