Identifying Adequate Small Modular Reactors Technology for Innovative H2 Production, Compression and Storage

2019-2021 | International Atomic Energy Agency - Coordinated Research Programme

The overall objective of this Coordinated Research Project (CRP) is to assess the experience gained from R&D on nuclear hydrogen production in IAEA’s Member States and the potential near-term deployment of nuclear hydrogen production. This on-going CRP is expected to develop a roadmap for upscal...


Options and Technologies for Managing the Back End of the Research Reactor Nuclear Fuel Cycle

2016-2021 | International Atomic Energy Agency - Coordinated Research Programme

The goal of the Research Project was to provide a comprehensive set of strategies for Research Reactor Nuclear Fuel Cycle (RRSNF) management, and to assist in the decision making process of a preferred option for each State’s particular situation. The development of a set of decision support tools w...


Less Nuclear Waste & Safer Exploitation of Research Reactors

2013-2015 | NSRF project - Program Thales

The goal of LENSER project was twofold: (a) to develop an enhanced, dynamic, stochastic neutronics code able to analyze GENII/III reactors as well as Accelerator Driven Systems (ADSs, as an option to safely burn minor actinides) and (b) to investigate methods for improving the Research Reactors’ (RR...


Nuclear Reactor Integrated Simulation Project
