The future of nuclear materials: ORIENT-NM final meeting - Public session

This event is the last step of ORIENT-NM's open dialogue with all relevant stakeholders on the future of nuclear materials research

The Euratom-funded ORIENT-NM project is pleased to invite you to its final meeting which will take place on 9 March 2023 in Brussels and online. 

This event is the last instance, in the frame of the ORIENT-NM project, to hold an open dialogue among the nuclear materials research community with all the relevant stakeholders to explore the next steps within a co-funded European partnership (CEP) on nuclear materials.


As per recent changes in the agenda, the meeting will be organised in two sessions: 

  • public session open to everybody interested in the project and in which the work done in ORIENT-NM will be reported.
  • closed session open only to relevant stakeholders (who will receive a separate invitation) to discuss specific legal and organisational points. 

Objectives of the public session

  • To present the latest results of ORIENT-NM work: its vision and Strategic Research Agenda (SRA), the proposed governance and structure, and the possible interactions of the future CEP with external stakeholders. 
  • To facilitate and make more efficient the preparation of a common project proposal after the end of ORIENT-NM.
