Following the Euratom FP7 Call 2013, 18 project proposals have now entered into negotiation with the European Commission / DG RTD. They are expected to conclude by Spring and the projects to start in September 2013.
The proposals most relevant to SNETP include:
- NUGENIA+, ESNII+ and NC2I-R, structuring the corresponding pillars of SNETP
- MatISSE, which supports the joint programme on nuclear materials of EERA
- ASAMPSA-E set to develop good practices on the use of level 1&2 PSA
- MARISA, in support to the Myrrha programme
On the occasion of the EC Symposium held in February, SNETP released the new version of its Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda. It results from the SNETP Governing Board’s decision at its meeting in March 2012 to prepare a revision of the SRA by February 2013. Through this document, the authors assessed the achievements and progress made since the previous release in 2009, including the conclusions of the works of the ad hoc task force set up to identify the research areas in response to the Fukushima accident.
