Formulation of a UK perspective for planning of the EU 7th Frame Work Nuclear Fission Safety Programme - RS01021

The Sixth Euratom RTD Framework Programme for research and technological development (FP6) will terminate in 2006. The seventh RTD framework programme (FP7) will commence thereafter. Nuclear fission safety has been a part of the work programme in all previous frameworks and is expected to be included in FP7. The HSE and DEFRA have a number of policy interests in the Framework Programmes and are likely to sit on the FP7 Working Groups in the areas of:

-Safety and efficiency of existing and future reactor systems

-Management of radioactive waste.
