Call for proposals 2017 - H2020 - Nuclear fission, fusion and radiation protection research NFRP-2018 Closed!


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.

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:

  1. Nuclear safety
  2. Decommissioning and environmental remediation
  3. Radioactive waste management
  4. Education and training
  5. Radiation protection
  6. Promote innovation in nuclear safety
  7. Fusion research


This call covers the following topics:

  • NFRP-2018-1: Safety assessments to improve accident management strategies for Generation II & III reactors
  • NFRP-2018-10: Encouraging innovation in nuclear safety for the benefit of European citizen
  • NFRP-2018-11: Open data access for fusion research
  • NFRP-2018-2: Model development and safety assessments for Generation IV reactors
  • NFRP-2018-3: Research on the safety of Light Water Small Modular Reactors
  • NFRP-2018-4: Improved nuclear data for energy and non-energy modelling applications.
  • NFRP-2018-5: Development of a roadmap for decommissioning research aiming at safety improvement, environmental impact minimisation and cost reduction
  • NFRP-2018-6: European Joint Research Programme in the management and disposal of radioactive waste
  • NFRP-2018-7: Availability and use of research infrastructures for education, training and competence building
  • NFRP-2018-8: Radiation protection research
  • NFRP-2018-9: Strategy for the exploitation of research results funded under Euratom Research and training Programmes in the field of radiation protection
