Project details are published on CORDIS after the negotiation and the signature of the grant agreement between the European Commission and the beneficiaries. This follows the publication of calls for proposals and the selection procedure where they are selected by the European Union to be partly financed by the Commission.
Projects funded under the Seventh Euratom Framework Programme in the field of nuclear fission and radiation protection:
- Management of radioactive waste - implementation-oriented R&D on all remaining key aspects of deep geological disposal of spent fuel and long-lived radioactive waste, and research on partitioning and transmutation and/or other concepts aimed at reducing the amount and/or hazard of the waste for disposal
- Reactor systems - for their continued safe operation, taking into account new challenges such as life-time extension, and research to assess the potential, safety and waste-management aspects of future reactor systems
- Radiation protection - in particular, research on the risks from low doses, medical uses and emergency management in order to provide the scientific basis for a robust, equitable and socially acceptable system of protection
- Infrastructures - supporting the availability of and access to key infrastructures of pan-European interest in the above research activities
Human resources, mobility and training to support the retention and further development of scientific competence and human capacity.
