Other activities in the field of nuclear technologies and safety (EUR 50 million)

Main objectives:

Support EU policies in the fields of health, energy and the environment to ensure that European capability is maintained in relevant fields not covered by the thematic priorities and to contribute towards the creation of the European Research Area.

Research areas:

  • Innovative concepts
    • Improved and safer processes for the generation and exploitation of nuclear energy

  • Education and training
    • Development of a more harmonised approach for education in nuclear sciences and engineering
    • Support for fellowships, training courses networks and grants for young researchers from NIS and CEEC

  • Safety of existing nuclear installations
    • Plant management (ageing, fuel performance, severe accident management, advanced numerical simulation, integration of capabilities and knowledge from practical decommissioning etc.)
