Integrated infrastructure initiatives for material testing reactors innovations

Objective

MTR+I3 is an Integrated Infrastructure Initiative to reinforce European experimental capabilities for testing material and fuel by :
* building a durable cooperation between Material Testing Reactor (MTR) operators and relevant laboratories
* maintaining the European leadership with up-dated capabilities and competences
* improving and structuring services with coordinated developments and uses of existing MTRs
* preparing the future European landscape by implementing Jules Horowitz Reactor (JHR) and subsequent complementary research reactors.

MTR+I3 covers: - Networking Activities fostering integration of MTRs community (new Members, associated and candidate states, labs with no, small or large MTRs) involved in designing, fabricating and operating irradiation devices through information exchange, know-how cross-fertilization, exchanges of interdisciplinary personnel and professional training.

The network will produce recommendations on irradiation device manufacturing and measurement practices. Transnational Accesses to the consortium MTRs will be prepared by proposing to the end-users in-pile qualifications of the developments performed in the frame of Joint Research Activities, before implementation in their programmes.

The tests will be technically and financially assessed by a Transnational Access Committee. - Joint Research Activities focusing on developments and fabrication of innovative test devices improving existing MTRs experimental capabilities to address safety issues, ageing management & optimisation of current power plants, fast neutron reactors with associated fuel cycle (sustainability, actinide management), and technologies for high temperature reactors (hydrogen economy).
These developments, reinforced by the networking, will give a direct impulse that improves JHR and subsequent EU research reactor technology.
