ENEN and NEA sign MOU to foster nuclear education and training

The European Nuclear Education Network (ENEN) and the NEA have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to co‑operate in the field of nuclear education, training and knowledge transfer – an increasingly important concern for NEA member countries. The MoU aims to advance the ENEN and NEA’s common aim of improving existing educational activities in the nuclear field, and maintaining the capability and expertise necessary to ensure the continued safe and efficient use of nuclear technology. ENEN and the NEA will cultivate joint…


HTR2018 Conference Outcomes

HTR 2018 conference took place on 10-12 October, 2018 in Warsaw, Poland. Since 2002, the International Conferences on High Temperature Reactor Technology has aimed to accelerate research and development on High-Temperature Gas Reactor (HTGR) and heat application technologies. After Weihai (2014) and Las Vegas (2016), the 2018 conference was the opportunity to draw a link with the Polish Nuclear Programme and European initiatives such as GEMINI+, a EU funded (H2020 Euratom Programme) project aiming…

Advanced Lead Fast Reactor European Demonstrator (ALFRED project)


Next week will take place the next Gen IV webinar on the Advanced Lead Fast Reactor European Demonstrator project (ALFRED).

It will present an overview of ALFRED’s specific design solutions, as well as the safety approach and safety characteristics of the project, touching the most important aspects of the demonstrator. Latest developments will briefly be presented too. The remaining research challenges will then be explained in the light of the present technology and further…


Realisation of a new large research infrastructure in Belgium: MYRRHA


Last Friday, the Belgian federal government announced “the realization of a new large research infrastructure in Belgium: MYRRHA” (Multi-purpose hYbrid Research Reactor for High-tech Applications). Over the course of the last twenty years, the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre, SCK•CEN, has been actively working on designing and building this new multifunctional research installation. It is the very first prototype of a nuclear reactor driven by a particle accelerator in the world.



EC launches public consultation on the strategy for EU GHG emissions reduction

 Bannières SNETP (5)

The European Commission has launched a public consultation on a strategy for long-term EU greenhouse gas emissions reduction. All interested citizens and stakeholders can send their contributions by 9 October 2018.  In March 2018, EU leaders asked the European Commission to present, within 12 months, “a proposal for a strategy for long-term EU greenhouse gas emissions reduction in accordance with…


A new SNETP factsheet is out! “Small Modular Reactors”


Nuclear Fuel - From Cradle to Grave (11)

The last decade has seen an increased interest in SMRs or small modular reactors. These small standardised reactors tackle the financial-burden currently observed in large nuclear projects. They also provide increased flexibility to balance the ever complex-to-manage electricity demand. SMRs offer new ways of producing and consuming nuclear energy, paving the way for industrial customers and emerging nuclear countries.
