The strategic goal of the fifth framework programme of the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) for research and training activities (1998-2002) is to help exploit the full potential of nuclear energy, both fusion and fission, in a sustainable manner, by making current technologies even safer and more economical and by exploring new concepts. The programme comprises two key actions, 'controlled thermonuclear fusion' and 'nuclear fission', generic research on 'radiological sciences' and 'support for research infrastructure'.

This report provides an overview of the 248 research projects, and training and accompanying measures, that have been selected for nuclear fission and radiation protection in the period 1999-2001. Some further projects will still be selected within this programme in 2002. The report covers the following areas:
- Operational safety of existing installations;
- Safety of the fuel cycle;
- Safety and efficiency of future systems;
- Radiation protection;
- Radiological sciences.

The full text of the report is freely available online, along with four annexes that are not included in the printed version, at:
