The activities funded by the current Work Programme have been developed in accordance with Regulation (Euratom) No 1314/2013. They are organised in seven sections:

A. Nuclear safety

B. Decommissioning and environmental remediation

C. Radioactive waste management

D. Education and training

E. Radiation protection

F. Promote innovation in nuclear safety

G. Fusion research

Where appropriate, social science and humanities, socio-economic issues and trans-national access to research infrastructures are addressed within each of the seven sections.

In line with the strategy for EU international cooperation in research and innovation, legal entities established in third countries will be eligible for funding when such funding is explicitly stipulated in the call.

In carrying out the activities proposed in the WP, due attention should be paid to education and training and to dissemination of research results through scientific publications, as well as to the exploitation of research results by the stakeholders concerned.

The use of nuclear technology in the EU has an outstanding nuclear safety record, but research is still needed to maintain a high level of safety in operating nuclear facilities, including the treatment and long-term management of associated radioactive waste, and to better understand the risks and hazards associated with the use of radiation in medicine and industry.

This call for proposals includes the following topics. Click on the topic to link directly to the Participant Portal.
