Establishment of a network of excellence for actinide sciences

Project ID: FIR1-CT-2002-20211
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C


The project "ACTINET" was to establish a network of excellence for actinide sciences in Europe to sustain and disseminate the indispensable knowledge and to advance the innovative research activity in actinide sciences. In the sphere of this network it was also envisaged to build up competent actinide scientists of the future generation by promoting the research collaboration via mobility of young scientists within the network member laboratories.
For establishing the network, the meetings have been organized by the core-institutions (FZK-INE, CEA-DSOE, JRC-ITU) for information exchange as well as for assessment of common interests on inviting the representatives of various laboratories working with actinides within the EU countries. Two workshops of broad participation (28 laboratories) were held for this purpose along with numerous internal coordination meetings among the core-institutions.
From the workshops together with the internal coordination meetings, a conceptual consensus has been attained for the scientific scope and task cornerstones of the "ACTINET" programme. They are the following.
