Thematic Network on Advanced Options for Partitioning and Transmutation (ADOPT), Final Report

Project ID: FIKW-CT-2001-20178
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C


In Europe there is a strong interest to explore the potential scientific, technical and industrial possibilities of Partitioning & Transmutation of high level waste. Integrating the total European efforts as efficiently as possible would be very beneficial and would speed up the development and put the European R&D at lead in this field. The Advanced Options for Partitioning and Transmutation thematic network has been established during FP5 to review and monitor 14 projects funded by the EC in the field of P&T, namely: PARTNEW, CALIXPART, PYROREP, FUTURE, CONFIRM, THORIUM CYCLE, PDS-XADS, n-TOF-NDADS, HINDAS, MUSE, SPIRE, TECLA, MEGAPIE-Test and ASCHLIM. The final reports of these projects can be found at the web address: The specific objectives of ADOPT were:
- To promote consistency between P&T FP5 projects and national programmes;
- To define rules for information dissemination and access to national R&D programme data;
- To review results of the P&T FP5 projects and avoid duplications;
- To identify gaps in the overall programme;
- To inform the members about the ongoing activities in P&T and ADS outside the EU; namely within IAEA, OECD-NEA, USA, Japan, Korea, former CIS countries and primarily through the ISTC projects.
