NUGENIA

Involved JRC Institutes: IET, ITU

Legal Basis: EURATOM Framework Programme

NUGENIA’s scope of activities are covered by the following 8 Technical Areas:

  1. Plant safety and risk assessment
  2. Severe accidents
  3. Improved reactor operation
  4. Integrity assessment & ageing of systems, structures & components
  5. Fuel development, waste and spent fuel management and decommissioning
  6. Innovative LWR design & technology
  7. Harmonisation
  8. European Network for Inspection & Qualification (ENIQ)

The creation of NUGENIA is the positive result of the integration process of groups active in the field of Generation II & III:

  • The first of the three SNETP pillars: Technology Working Group Gen II & III
  • The NULIFE Network of Excellence on nuclear plant life management
  • The SARNET Network of Excellence on severe accidents
  • The European Network for Inspection & Qualification (ENIQ)

NUGENIA is regrouping most of the Utilities, NPP designers, Technical Safety Organisations (TSOs) and Research Organisations in Europe working in the field of Generation II & III Nuclear Power Plants.
