PIs with non-I-Corps NSFfunded projects awarded between 2009 and 2013 will be surveyed. PIs who reported active interest in commercial potential for their research projects will be asked to complete an additional module adapted from the I-Corps Longitudinal Data Collection already approved by OMB for I-Corps team members. PIs not interested in the commercial potential of their research will stop the survey after completing the screening module. The surveys will be administered online. In addition to the comparison between the I-Corps teams and a comparable group based on survey results, the study also includes in-depth interviews to gain an understanding of the influence of participation in the ICorps program on PIs (and/or other active team members) as well as to compare the impact of the I-Corps program on industry collaborations and other networking activities. Half of all in-depth interviews will be conducted over the phone while the other half will take place during site visits to the home institutions of the teams selected for the study. Affected Public: NSF and NIH I-Corps grantees, including PIs, Entrepreneurial Leads and Mentors (or individuals taking equivalent formal roles in the teams) and non-I-Corps Grant recipients of NSF Programs. Total Respondents: 6,222 (survey of NSF/NIH I-Corps grantee team members and non-I-Corps NSF PIs) and 160 (indepth interviews with I-Corps and nonI-Corps PIs, their teams and support personnel). Frequency: One-time collection. Total responses: 5,422 (non-I-Corps screener questions only), 1,342 (longitudinal survey instrument for ICorps teams and non-I-Corps NSF PIs), and 160 (in-depth interviews). Average Time per response: 3 minutes (screener questions), 15 minutes (longitudinal survey instrument), and 60 minutes (in-depth interview). Estimated Total Burden Hours: 817 hours. Authority: Pub. L. 104–13 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). Dated: December 16, 2016. Suzanne H. Plimpton, Reports Clearance Officer, National Science Foundation.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The NRC has issued renewed Facility Operating License No. NPF–43, held by the licensee, which authorizes continued operation of Fermi 2 at reactor core power levels not in excess of 3,486 megawatts thermal, in accordance with the provisions of the renewed license and technical specifications. The ROD that supports the decision to renew Facility Operating License No. NPF–43 is available in ADAMS under Accession No. ML16270A567. As discussed in the ROD and the final supplemental environmental impact statement (FSEIS) for Fermi 2 Nuclear Power Plant, Supplement 56 to NUREG– 1437, ‘‘Generic Environmental Impact Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Plants, Regarding Fermi 2 Nuclear Power Plant,’’ dated September 2016 (ADAMS Accession No. ML16259A103 for Volume 1 and ML16259A109 for Volume 2), the NRC considered a range of reasonable alternatives that included natural gas combined-cycle (NGCC); coal-integrated gasification combined-cycle; new nuclear power; and a combination of NGCC, wind, and solar power. The ROD and FSEIS document the NRC’s determination that the adverse environmental impacts of license renewal for Fermi 2 are not so great that preserving the option of license renewal for energy planning decision makers would be unreasonable. Fermi 2 is a single-unit, boiling water reactor and is located in Frenchtown Township, Michigan. The application for the renewed license, ‘‘Fermi 2 License Renewal Application,’’ dated April 24, 2014 (ADAMS Package Accession No. ML14121A554), as supplemented by letters dated through July 6, 2016, complied with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the NRC’s regulations.

Introduction The NRC is considering renewal of Facility License No. R–70, held by the UMD, which would authorize continued operation of the MUTR, located in College Park, Prince George’s County, Maryland. Therefore, as required by section 51.21 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ‘‘Criteria for and identification of licensing and regulatory actions requiring environmental assessments,’’ the NRC performed an EA. Based on the results of the EA that follows, the NRC has determined not to prepare an environmental impact statement for the renewed license and is issuing a FONSI. The renewed license will be issued following the publication of this notice. II. Environmental Assessment Description of the Proposed Action The proposed action would renew Facility License No. R–70 for a period of 20 years from the date of issuance of the renewed license. The proposed action is in accordance with the licensee’s application dated May 12, 2000, as supplemented by letters dated June 7, August 4, September 17, and October 7, 2004; April 18, 2005; April PO 00000 Frm 00089 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 93969 25, (two letters), August 28 (two letters), September 7, November 9, and December 18, 2006; May 27, July 28, and September 22, 2010; January 31, February 2, May 2, July 5, July 29, September 26, September 28, and October 12, 2011; February 9, March 14, May 22, and August 29, 2012; March 21, 2013; April 10, June 18, and November 25 (two letters), 2014; December 2, 2015; and January 5, February 18, February 29, and November 17, 2016. In accordance with 10 CFR 2.109, ‘‘Effect of timely renewal application,’’ the existing license remains in effect until the NRC takes final action on the renewal application. Need for the Proposed Action The proposed action is needed to allow the continued operation of the MUTR to routinely provide teaching, research, and services to numerous institutions for a period of 20 years. Environmental Impacts of the Proposed Action The NRC is preparing its safety evaluation (SE) of the proposed action to issue a renewed Facility Operating License No. R–70 to allow continued operation of the MUTR for a period of 20 years and concludes there is reasonable assurance that the MUTR will continue to operate safely for the additional period of time. The details of the NRC staff’s SE will be provided with the renewed license that will be issued as part of the letter to the licensee approving its license renewal application. This document contains the EA of the proposed action. The MUTR is located on the northeastern quadrant of UMD campus in a dedicated building connected to the Chemical and Nuclear Engineering Building. The reactor is housed in a building constructed primarily of concrete, brick, and steel which serves as a confinement. The reactor site comprises the reactor building and a small area immediately surrounding it. Adjacent to the reactor site are three buildings: The J.M. Patterson Building; the Asphalt Institute, and the Animal and Avian Sciences building. The nearest permanent residences are located approximately 370 meters (1,200 feet) from the site boundary. The nearest dormitories are located approximately 230 meters (750 feet) from the reactor. The MUTR is a light water open pool type reactor licensed for a maximum 250 kilowatt (thermal) steady state power using low-enriched uranium (less than 20 percent) TRIGA (Training, Research, Isotope Production, General Atomics) fuel. The reactor is not licensed to operate in a pulse mode. The E:\FR\FM\22DEN1.SGM 22DEN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NRC has issued renewed Facility 
Operating License No. NPF-43, held by the licensee, which authorizes 
continued operation of Fermi 2 at reactor core power levels not in 
excess of 3,486 megawatts thermal, in accordance with the provisions of 
the renewed license and technical specifications. The ROD that supports 
the decision to renew Facility Operating License No. NPF-43 is 
available in ADAMS under Accession No. ML16270A567.
    As discussed in the ROD and the final supplemental environmental 
impact statement (FSEIS) for Fermi 2 Nuclear Power Plant, Supplement 56

license renewal for Fermi 2 are not so great that preserving the option 
of license renewal for energy planning decision makers would be 
unreasonable.
    Fermi 2 is a single-unit, boiling water reactor and is located in
