Envisioning the future of nuclear materials
Nuclear power will play a key role in the energy transition. Materials are key for safety, efficiency and economy of nuclear energy. Hence the importance of funding research on nuclear materials through stable and highly cooperative instruments, as in a European Joint Programme, or Co-funded European Partnership (CEP) in HEU. The EU-funded ORIENT-NM project will set the basis for launching a CEP on nuclear materials. The project will produce a convincing strategic research agenda for materials for all nuclear reactor generations and develop an efficient CEP governance and legal structure, as well as implementation scheme. Finally, it will identify appropriate ways of interaction with other bodies and initiatives connected with nuclear materials, in close dialogue with Member States, the European Commission and stakeholders.
