Technology platform: the way ahead

The Sustainable Nuclear Energy Technology Platform will prepare and implement a strategic research agenda to ensure that future nuclear power generation in Europe maintains high levels of safety and competitiveness with vastly improved sustainability.

The platform will be stakeholder led and enhance the integration of national and industrial programmes.

Ultimately, the decision whether or not to use nuclear power, just like any other energy source, is a political and societal one taken at national level, even though there is a growing European dimension. The role of Euratom, and other energy-related research in Europe, is to supply the knowledge and understanding so that informed decisions can be taken on future energy options.
