High Flux Reactor supplementary research programme 2012-2015 2012/709/Euratom Closed!


Within the framework of the European Research Area, the high flux reactor at Petten (hereinafter ‘HFR’) has been, and continues to be for some time, an important means available to the Community to contribute to materials sciences and testing, to nuclear medicine andto reactor safety research in the field of nuclear energy.


The adoption of a supplementary research programme to be implemented by the Joint Research Centre for the European Atomic Energy Community. Given the continued need for the HFR as an irreplaceable infrastructure for Community research in the fields of improvement of safety of nuclear reactors, health including the development of medical isotopes to answer questions of medical research, nuclear fusion, fundamental research, training and waste management including the possibility to study the safety behaviour of nuclear fuels for reactor systems of interest to Europe, its operation should continue under this supple­mentary research programme until the end of 2015.
