Call for proposals Euratom - Nuclear Fission and Radiation Protection 2010 FP7-Fission-2010 Closed!


The FP7-Fission-2009 (Nuclear Fission and Radiation Protection) Call for Proposals develops the objectives of the Programme of the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) for nuclear research and training activities.

The Programme main objective under this priority is to establish a sound scientific and technical basis in order to accelerate practical developments for the safe management of long-lived radioactive waste, to enhance the safety performance, resource efficiency and cost-effectiveness of nuclear energy and to ensure a robust and socially acceptable system of protection of man and the environment against the effects of ionising radiation.

In adition to our useful documents section, further information about FP7-Fission-2010 call under the 2010 work programme ‘Euratom’ of the 7th Framework Programme of the European Community for nuclear research and training activities, as well as relevant documents, can be found at the Cordis website
