This fifth international symposium FISA-2003 was organised as conclusion of the 71 multipartners projects in the area of reactor safety, which were launched under the specific programme �Nuclear Fission� of the Euratom framework programme 1998-2002. The total value of these projects was EUR 85 million, out of which approximately half is paid by the EC budget. The symposium discussed the strategy and the main achievements of EU research in the area of reactor safety, especially plant life extension and management, severe accident management and evolutionary safety concepts, with emphasis on their applications to plant safety improvement and regulatory approaches. In addition, a total of 20 invited lecturers of generic interest were presented at this symposium, some of which related to the next Euratom framework programme. The audience consisted of approximately 300 experts, representatives of the end-user from inside and outside the EU Member States.
