The website provides information on the latest developments in the three main areas of energy research:
  • Non-nuclear energy - clean energy technologies, energy efficiency and renewable energy sources, including research activities of the Research Fund for Coal and Steel link 1;
  • Fission and radiation protection - waste management, radiation protection and increased safety;
  • Fusion - demonstrating the scientific and technical feasibility of fusion as a viable source of safe, clean and abundant energy for the future.

Important note: Specific information regarding participation in EC Research Programmes is provided on the dedicated CORDIS link 2 website.
