Publication of new issues of ENIQ Guidance Documents

The European Network for Inspection and Qualification (ENIQ) is a network dealing with the reliability and effectiveness of non-destructive testing (NDT) for nuclear power plants (NPPs). ENIQ is driven by European nuclear utilities and is working mainly in the areas of qualification of NDT systems and risk-informed in-service inspection (RI-ISI). Since its establishment in 1992 ENIQ has performed two pilot studies on in-service inspection (ISI) qualification and has issued more than 60 documents. ENIQ is recognised as one…


SNETP & NUGENIA come together to form a single legal entity



We made it!!!

The Sustainable Nuclear Energy Technology Platform (SNETP) has agreed with the international association NUGENIA¬†to join efforts by creating one single international association. Together they will aim to strengthen the positioning of nuclear energy in today’s and tomorrow’s¬†European energy mix¬†and consolidate European research, development, demonstration and innovation (R&D&I) on fission technologies.
This union is an important milestone highlighting the engagement of the European scientific…


NuFuel-MMSNF 2019 Workshop: Registration & Abstract submission is now open

  • When: 4-7 November 2019
  • Where: Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), Switzerland

The NuFuel workshop was initiated by CEA-DEN and JRC Karlsruhe under the auspices of the European Energy Alliance’s (EERA) Joint Programme on Nuclear Materials (JPNM) to establish stronger and more lasting collaborative links between European institutes, to provide a forum where dialogue between experts is fostered, and to give students and young scientists the possibility to present their work and discuss with experts in the field.



Look back at NUGENIA Forum 2019

The¬†NUGENIA Forum 2019¬†was held on 13-15 March 2019 at Cit√© Universitaire, in Paris. During three days, more than¬†260 participants from¬†90 organisations¬†exchanged on¬†‚ÄúInnovation for existing Gen II & III nuclear power plants‚ÄĚ.¬†

NUGENIA president,¬†Michel Maschi¬†(EDF)¬†officially opened the Forum by welcoming the audience and presenting the association.¬†As innovation can have different meanings,¬†six successive keynote speeches were given on the first day plenary sessions¬†to help corner and define its various applications for nuclear in terms of safety, digital, risk assessment, decommissioning,…
