The PREPARE project aims to address the gaps identified in nuclear and radiological preparedness, including emergency management, rehabilitation strategies and expertise. This aim will be achieved through collaboration between industry and research and governmental organisations in Europe, taking into account the networking activities that have been carried out under the European Platform on Preparedness for Nuclear and Radiological Emergency Response and Recovery (NERIS-TP), a technology platform of 49 active member organisations.
The Central Design Team (CDT) project, which ended in 2012, supported the design of MYRRHA, a multi-purpose experimental facility with applications in the reactor and accelerator technology fields. It built upon the results of the FP6 IP-EUROTRANS project to further improve nuclear safety while promoting the sustainable management of radioactive waste and geological storage. CDT involved European Research and Development organisations and industries that have been conducting strong research in the field for more than a decade.
