To prepare the implementation of Horizon Europe, the European Commission has launched an online consultation as part of Horizon Europe’s intensive co-design process. The process will help shape European research and innovation investments in the coming years.With a proposed budget of 100 billion euros from 2021 to 2027, the Horizon Europe framework programme represents the largest collaborative multinational research and innovation investment in Europe and is open to…
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…
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…

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.
The NUGENIA Forum 2019 was held on 13-15 March 2019 at Cité Universitaire, in Paris. During three days, more than 260 participants from 90 organisations exchanged on “Innovation for existing Gen II & III nuclear power plants”.
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,…

Organised in the framework of the ESFR-SMART project, the “instrumentation for the safety of liquid metal facilities” workshop is dedicated to topics covering coolant technology, facility design, data analysis and code validation with respect to the 4th Generation ESNII fast reactor demonstrators cooled with liquid metals. A special focus will be on sodium, but other liquid metals (lead, lead-bismuth, etc.) will also be addressed.
The workshop aims at providing a platform for discussing and exchanging ideas between students, young professionals…
