In January 2021 SNETP answered the European Commission’s online questionnaire on Euratom-funded nuclear research. The survey aims to gather feedback from research stakeholders, Member States and other interested parties on research and training in nuclear safety, waste management, radiation protection and fusion energy. The results will serve as basis for the preparation of the Euratom Research and Training Programme 2021-2025.
SNETP’s response to the consultation contained an annex with the association’s view on the current agenda for strategic research and innovation identifying:
- challenges ahead of the nuclear fission and R&D orientation to tackle them
- specific challenges of each SNETP pillar and R&D priorities, and
- cross-cutting challenges with common R&D orientations
