We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The Programme Advisory Committee (PAC) is composed of
Responsibles of the JRC nuclear facilities contribute to the PAC meetings as advisors.
The present members of the PAC are:
Franz-Josef Hambsch, JRC Directorate for Nuclear Safety and Security, Geel, Belgium (Chairman of the PAC)
Wim Mondelaers, JRC Directorate for Nuclear Safety and Security, Geel, Belgium
Pierino De Felice, National Institute of Ionizing Radiation Metrology, ENEA, Roma, Italy
Cyrille de Saint-Jean, Laboratoire d'Etudes de Physique, CEA, Cadarache, France

Arjan Plompen, JRC Directorate for Nuclear Safety and Security, Geel, Belgium (Nuclear Data cluster coordinator)
Mikael Hult, JRC Directorate for Nuclear Safety and Security, Geel, Belgium (Radionuclides cluster coordinator)
The PAC will assess these proposals on the basis of the following criteria:
The PAC will also group the supported experiments in two categories: collaborative experiments and associated experiments. Criteria to attribute an experimental proposal to the group of collaborative projects are:
The PAC is in charge of ranking the proposals. Once an external user proposal is approved, it will also be the task of the PAC to define the maximum hours of measurement time that will be supported and to fix the financial limits of the user support for collaborative projects (travel, accommodation and subsistence).
A list with titles of the accepted proposals will be published here.
