Abstract

This meeting report is a record of the presentations and discussions at the international seminar on "Networking for effective R&D", which was held at the JRC's Institute for Energy in Petten, the Netherlands, 22-23 September.

The goal of the Seminar to establish a consensus on the future development of the European networking activities was in the area of plant life management, and in particular structural integrity aspects, for the 6th Framework Programme and beyond. The programme covered:
a)lessons-learned and best practices from the major successes of existing networks over the last ten years and
b) reviews of emerging R&D priority areas.
c) a strong interactive element, with all participants encouraged to express ideas via an on-the-spot survey and panel discussion.

The seminar has highlighted the very significant results generated by the JRC's nuclear safety networks over the last 10 years. Areas and possibilities for further developments have also been outlined.
