The Joint Programme on Nuclear Materials of the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA JPNM) coordinates R&D in Europe towards the development and qualification of innovative materials solutions, to increase the safety and the efficiency of nuclear reactors, by enabling the design of GenIV systems. The expertise on development and qualification of materials for extreme operating conditions is also important for other low-carbon energy technologies, thereby opening the way to cross-sectorial collaboration.
The ultimate goal is to enable the selection of the most suited materials and to define safe design rules for advanced nuclear systems, considering especially radiation and temperature effects, as well as compatibility issues, while ensuring improved component lifetime management.
