A number of experimental works on reactor pressure vessel (RPV) materials embrittlement are carried out at the Institute for Advanced Materials (IAM) within the framework of the European network AMES, (ageing materials evaluation and studies). This paper is intended to give information about the structure and the objectives of the existing European network AMES, and to present the various AMES main and spin-off projects, including a brief discussion on the modelling activities related to RPV materials embrittlement and ageing.
