VVER Safety Research

Objective

The Co-ordination Action project - "VVER Safety Research" is proposed with the objective to improve professional and communication environment important for ensuring a continuing safe and efficient operation of nuclear power plants with VVER-440 and VVER-1000 reactors.

Co-ordination activities will cover such important areas as Operational Safety, Factors of Materials and Equipment Ageing, Information and Knowledge Management so that the shared information will contribute also to the enhancement of NPPs operational efficiency. Effective experience and information exchange between the participating organisations and end users will be based on the appropriate SW and other communication tools. Significant attention will be paid to such issue as the integration of obtained resulting information with that accumulated in the countries outside of the EU operating VVER reactors. The viable organisation form of the RTD structure shall enable the synergic utilisation of parallel activities in the research and industrial applications even after the project will be finalised.

Scope of activities:
- Develop a viable RTD structure (outlining task sharing among partners, schemes for external funding, mobility of researchers, exploitation and dissemination) and evaluate its impact on VVER plant safety management
- Establish improved links for the exchange of information (e.g. safety engineering databanks) amongst the stakeholders and organise relevant education/training activities in liaison with other existing RTD projects
- Develop coherent guidelines and best practices for joint research programmes on VVER operational safety, materials and equipment ageing and test the efficiency of the proposed RTD structure
