Welcome to SNETP, Europe's
Sustainable Nuclear Energy Technology Platform
Three SNETP Pillars: NUGENIA, ESNII, NC2I
The SNETP Vision Report set out three major pillars: maintaining the safety and competitiveness of today's technologies; developing a new generation of more sustainable reactor technologies; and developing new applications for nuclear power.
NUGENIA: Nuclear Generation II&III Association
The association gathers stakeholders from industry, research, safety organisations and academia, committed to develop joint R&D projects in the field.

ESNII: European Sustainable Nuclear Industrial Initiative
The main goal of ESNII is to design, license, construct, commission and put into operation before 2025 the Sodium Fast Reactor (SFR) Prototype reactor called ASTRID and the flexible fast spectrum irradiation facility MYRRHA. The ALFRED demonstrator for Lead-cooled Fast Reactor (LFR), and ALLEGRO for Gas-cooled Fast Reactor (GFR) technologies are also part of the roadmap.

NC2I: Nuclear Cogeneration Industrial Initiative
The targeted outcome is the commissioning within 10 years of a nuclear cogeneration prototype to deploy this low-carbon energy technology in several energy-intensive industries.

The SRIA is the result of the contribution from nearly 100 scientists and engineers from the member organisations of SNETP, under the Chairmanship of Dr Enrique Gonzalez of CIEMAT, followed by a public consultation.
The SRIA is being updated and will soon be available.
The latest version of the SRIA, issued in February 2013, is available for download here.
- Identify the key actions necessary to implement the Strategic Research Agenda.
- Overcome the technical and non-technical barriers.
- Communicate to decision-makers and the general public on its benefits and impact.

As an important cross-cutting activity within SNETP, the ETKM group collaborates closely with the SRIA and DS working groups in order to provide a coherent approach for ETKM activities.
Its main objectives are to:
- Identify education and training gaps and recommend actions at appropriate levels.
- Take account of the knowledge that was collected in companies, research centres or regulators and recommends actions for transferring it to younger generations
- Supports the dialogue on international cooperation in the field of ETKM between EURATOM and non-EU countries
