Abstract

This supplementary programme on the operation of the high flux reactor (HFR) formed part of the 1973-76 research and training programme for the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom). The programme is one of the principal means by which the European Atomic Energy Community can contribute to the safe use of nuclear energy and to the acquisition and dissemination of information in this field.

Located at Petten, the Netherlands, the HFR is operated by the Commission in accordance with the Euratom/Netherlands agreement of 25 July 1961. Under this agreement, the Commission has committed itself, on behalf of the Community, to build the necessary facilities and to provide additional equipment in order to make optimum use of the Petten facilities, including the HFR.

Implementation

The supplementary programme on the "Operation of the high flux reactor (HFR)" was established and implemented under the Council Decision adopting a research and training programme (1973-1976) for the European Atomic Energy Community (Decision 73/124/Euratom, Official Journal No L 153 of 9.6.1973).

A budget of ECU 23 million was established to operate the reactor during the four-year period, to be raised from the contributions of the three participating Member States: Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.

This budgetary allocation covered the operation of the reactor and the planing, execution and supervision of experiments to support the participating Member States' programmes in this area. Provisions were made to enable any surplus capacity to be made available to outside parties on a fee basis.
