14/07/2008 - New modelling makes nuclear power plants safer -
Euratom project PERFECT lays basis for long-term projections

The results of the Euratom project PERFECT (Prediction of Irradiation Damage Effects in Reactor Components) can make nuclear power plants safer and extend their lifetime. It lays the basis for long-term projections of nuclear power plant life management. The research consortium under the lead of Electricité de France presented their results after the end of the project in July.

31/01/2006 - CATT - An effort to develop technology transfer on long-term radioactive waste management between Member States with large and small nuclear programmes PDF icon [11 Kb]

Funded under FP6 this 18-month Specific Support Action (SSA) will explore the viability of implementing technology transfer arrangements between "Donor Member States", with large programmes and Member States which may not be able to develop their own long-term radioactive waste management solutions, the "Recipient Member States". Further development of cooperation between Member States under a FP7 Technology Platform will be evaluated.
