Abstract

The first part of the report briefly outlines the content and the main results of research work performed in 1994 by the Institute of Safety Technology (IST) in the specific programmes: reactor safety, waste, safeguards, fusion, industrial hazards, reference methods for evaluation of structural reliability and working environment. In the reactor safety area the research was mainly devoted to the study of severe accident phenomena with the FARO programme and the participation in the Phebus-FP in-pile tests. Research on other aspects of nuclear energy developed around the laboratories of the nuclear island: PERLA and TAME for waste and safeguards, and ETHEL for fusion. The second part of the report illustrates the activities performed by the Institute in support of the Commission's policies and gives information on other initiatives of the Institute, such as the exploratory research programme.
