Supplying Accurate Nuclear Data for energy and non-energy Applications

Project description

New data library containing high-accuracy nuclear measurements

Accurate nuclear data are of fundamental importance in a number of different nuclear and non-nuclear fields. The EU-funded SANDA project aims to produce a data library containing high-quality nuclear measurements on key isotopes and reactions. The project puts special focus on how data is measured, evaluated and validated. This high-accuracy nuclear data can be exploited by safety authorities, research institutions, the nuclear industry, and health organisations. SANDA aims to widely and efficiently disseminate its results through the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).


Supplying Accurate Nuclear Data for energy and non-energy Applications.
The project will include experimental measurements of new or improved quality data, evaluation, validation and dissemination of the data to produce libraries that can be used by safety authorities, research institutions, the nuclear energy industry, health organizations, other non-energy applications and the EU society at large. The project will also include in smaller fraction support to detector development, facility setups and samples fabrication to prepare important measurements and validations that are not possible in the time framework of the present proposal but that will be required in near future for the safe and efficient use of nuclear technologies.
The selection of topics, isotopes, reactions, measurements, experiments and evaluation has been made taking into account the relevance, expected impact and priorities of the resulting data according to the NEA/OECD and IAEA high priority lists and committees as well as the experience of the participants and of previous EU proposals with large participation of the partners for the present proposal (CHANDA, ANDES,…). The impact has been evaluated from the perspective of a safe, efficient and competitive use of nuclear technologies.
In comparison with previous projects, the present proposal proposes to concentrate more efforts on delivering actual results than in the preparation for the future, by enhancing the support to evaluations, validations and actual measurements. Also special attention has been paid to make sure that the topics included cover the non-energy application requiring nuclear data as well as it will cover the needs of the nuclear energy sector.
Respecting those principles, the proposal has also tried to be as inclusive to the different EU research groups and countries as possible maintaining the manageability of the project, its efficiency and the maximum quality and relevance of the action and involved partners.
