Work Programme 2009 Euratom for Nuclear Research and Training Activities, European Commission C(2008) 4522 of 22 August 2008

Funded under: FP7-EURATOM

Abstract

Research and development activities in this work programme comprise two themes: Fusion Energy, and Nuclear Fission and Radiation Protection. In the priority theme of Fusion Energy, the overall objective is to develop the knowledge base for, and to realise ITER as the major step towards the creation of prototype reactors for nuclear fusion based power stations that are safe, sustainable, environmentally responsible and economically viable. In the priority theme of Nuclear Fission and Radiation Protection, the overall objective is to establish a sound scientific and technical basis in order to accelerate practical developments for the safe management of long-lived radioactive waste, to enhance the safety performance, resource efficiency and cost-effectiveness of nuclear energy and to ensure a robust and socially acceptable system of protection of man and the environment against the effects of ionising radiation.
