The experimental feasibility of targets for transmutation (EFTTRA) collaboration between CEA (France), ECN (Netherlands), EDF (France), FZK (Germany), IAM and ITU (European Commission), launched in 1992, has now reached its cruising speed. Joint experiments for the study of materials for the transmutation have started in parallel in the Phénix fast reactor in France, and in the high flux thermal reactor HFR in the Netherlands. One of these experiments, concerning technetium and iodine, has been completed and the results published. The EFTTRA activities are described, in particular one experiment concerning the irradiation of a spinel matrix with 10% americium content.
