Coordination action on nuclear data for industrial development in Europe

Objective

A Co-ordinated Action is proposed with the ambition to establish a durable network on nuclear data efforts that are important in the context of minimising the high-level waste stream of nuclear energy. This implies optimal incineration of all actinides that nowadays constitute spent nuclear fuel, in critical and sub-critical reactors. As a consequence, the proposed CA encompasses transmutation in critical reactors (Gen-IV type concepts) as well as sub-critical systems (ADS).

The purpose is to identify the needs for nuclear data, assess the present status of knowledge, and to estimate what accuracy can be reached with state-of-the-art techniques. The final result of the CA will be a report describing the state-of-the-art and giving recommendations to the EU outlining how nuclear data research should be organised in FP7 and beyond. The project is focussed on nuclear data issues that are critical to the assessment of the safety and effectiveness of the various proposed waste management strategies, by considering primarily the fuels and structural parts of the cores. To achieve this focus the proposed CA aims to unify competence from the entire spectrum of stakeholders ranging from industry to research institutes and academic research.

The basic structure of the project is top-down, i.e., the needs for improved data is identified primarily by the industry, and the requests for improvements established in this process are used as starting point for further actions. The CA furthermore includes promotion of education and integration by the development of a European school on nuclear data, as well as workshops for integrating nuclear data research communities hitherto not being well-integrated partners of the regular, well-established nuclear data organs. This concerns primarily the relatively new nuclear data community in ADS research and the nuclear data research in the new member and candidate states.
