We present the current development of a new ab initio approach for nuclear reactions that takes advantage of SU(3) symmetry and its relevant dynamics combined with the resonating group method. In this model, the structure of the clusters is based on the ab initio symmetry-adapted no-core shell model, which enables the description of spatially enhanced nuclear configurations. We will present the formalism that involves the expression of the norm kernels in the SU(3) symmetry-adapted basis, in addition to first results for the p-(formula presented), p-(formula presented)O and p-(formula presented)Ne scattering reactions.
