EVALUATION OF THE FUSION TECHNOLOGY AND SAFETY PROGRAMME OF THE JOINT RESEARCH CENTRE (1980 - 1985)
The DG XII, following a policy of systematically evaluating its R&D activities, has appointed a panel of external experts to evaluate the fusion technology and safety programme carried out at the Joint Research Centre. This report describes the work of the panel in evaluating the research performed by the JRC within the framework of its 1984 - 1987 programme. The achievements of the previous programme, 1980 - 1983, were also taken into consideration. The different research areas covered in the programme, i.e.: reactor studies, breeding blanket technology, structural materials studies, risk assessment and tritium laboratory studies, are described and a draft proposal for the period 1987 - 1990 presented. The evaluation panel has been asked to assess the following aspects: the scientific and technical achievements of the programme, the contribution of the programme to the development of other Community policies, the role played by the JRC in the European fusion research (including NET) and in international collaborations such as INTOR. From its assessment the evaluation panel has made a series of recommendations for the current programme and for future work.
