FISA 2006 - EU Research and Training in Reactor Systems, EUR 21231

Funded under: FP6-EURATOM

Abstract

In this FISA-2006 conference, invited lectures were delivered both by FP-6 project co-ordinators and by representatives of the "stakeholders" in response to the following questions:
1) what are the challenges facing the European Union nuclear fission research community in the short (today), medium (2010) and long term (2040)?
2) what kind of research and technological development (RTD) does Euratom offer to respond to these challenges, in particular in the area of reactor systems and fuel cycles?
In the general debate about energy supply technologies there are challenges of both a scientific and technological (S/T) as well as an economic and political (E/P) nature. Though the Community research programme acts mainly on the former, there is nevertheless important links with Community policy. These not only exist in the specific area of nuclear policy, but also more generally.
