The European Network on 'Ageing Materials Evaluation and Studies' (AMES) provides information and understanding on neutron irradiation effects in reactor materials in support of designers, operators, regulators and researchers. It also establishes and discharges projects in the above areas. The structure, objectives, and major projects of the AMES network are described. Particular emphasis is placed upon the work it is performing within the Task Group on water moderated water cooled reactors (WWER) of the first AMES project (AMES1) on 'Validation of surveillance practice and mitigation methods'. EC DGXVII is addressing the question of how to facilitate contacts between European Union (EU) and Russian industries in the framework of nuclear industrial co-operation, and this project may provide a suitable starting point upon which to develop a basis for further work of mutual interest.
