The European Commission, DG XII, has published a two-volume catalogue of research projects entitled "Nuclear fission safety: Shared-cost and concerted actions (1989-1994). The catalogue presents the research work implemented as part of the R&D shared-cost specific programmes in the field of nuclear fission safety under the Second Framework Programme (1987-1991) and the Third Framework Programme (1990-1994) for research and technological development. The shared-cost specific programmes are as follows: - Volume I: . Decommissioning of nuclear installations (1989-1993); . Radioactive waste management and storage (1990-1994); . Reactor safety (1990-1994); . Robotics for hazardous or disordered nuclear environments (TELEMAN) (1989-1994); - Volume II: . Radiation protection (1990-1994). The total budget for all programmes amounted to ECU 218 million for the whole period. The document provides general information on projects within the programmes, including a brief description of their objectives and work programmes.
