JOINT INTRODUCTION and CONCLUSION of the two conferences will provide a unique opportunity to set the scene and provide key recommendations at European and International levels.

FISA 2022 and EURADWASTE ‘22 topics of the conferences are:


1 | Safety of nuclear installations

Reactor Performance, system reliability: Long-Term Operation
Reactor Performance, system reliability: Instrumentation and control
Advanced numerical simulation and modelling for reactor safety
Innovative Gen-II -III and Research Reactors’ Fuels and Materials
Safety assessments and severe accidents, impact of external events on nuclear power plants and on mitigation strategies
Probabilistic Safety Assessment for internal and external events on nuclear power plants and on mitigation strategies

2 | Advanced nuclear systems & fuel cycles

R&D in support to safety assessment, design and licensing of ESNII / Gen-IV
From fuel to fuel: Dissolution, Partitioning and fuel manufacturing
Partitioning and Transmutation, contribution to an EU strategy for HLW management
Innovative Gen-IV Fuels and Materials, EERA-JPNM, Fission and Fusion
Nuclear Cogeneration with High Temperature Reactors
Nuclear data activities

3 | Education & Training, research infrastructures, low-dose radiation protection, decommissioning & International Cooperation

Education, Training and mobility, knowledge management: towards a common effort to assure a future workforce in Europe and abroad
Improved expertise in radiation protection and medical applications
Improved expertise and innovations in decommissioning
Supporting Access to key pan-European research infrastructures and International Cooperation


1 | Collaborative Research, Development and Demonstration in Radioactive Waste Management

Research and innovation studies related to RWM such as short and long-term experiments and/or modelling work to demonstrate the robustness of the waste management concepts, to increase understanding and predictability of the impact of fundamental processes and their couplings or to maintain scientific excellence and competences throughout the stepwise long-term management of radioactive waste.

Radioactive Waste Characterisation
Predisposal Operations
Long term behaviour of waste packages
Engineered Barrier Systems
Host rocks and THMC processes in GDR
Spent Fuel Management

2 | Strategic Research Studies in Radioactive Waste Management

Strategic studies in support of the implementation of the national programmes that address scientific, technical but also societal aspects of RWM such as the establishment of radioactive waste inventories, safety cases, performance assessments, the costing of a RWM programme and the interactions with the civil society.

Sustainable networking for Independent Technical Expertise in RWM
Uncertainty management in establishing safety cases for GDR
Integration Group for the Safety Case
Waste Management Routes “From cradle to grave”
Financial aspects of Radioactive Waste Management
International perspectives in RWM and Geological Disposal

3 | Knowledge Management in Radioactive Waste Management

Transversal activities in knowledge management related to RWM including exiting knowledge, guiding the planning and implementation of a RD&D plan and developing/delivering a training and mobility programme in line with core competencies. The session covers as well transfer/sharing of knowledge between front runners and countries at an early stage of their programmes and between generations.

State of knowledge
Training and mobility
E&T, T&T, KM challenges and opportunities applied to RWM


The Sustainable Nuclear Energy Technology Platform (SNETP) association was established in September 2007 as a Research & Development & Innovation platform to support and promote the safe, reliable and efficient operation of Generation II, II and IV civil nuclear systems. Since May 2019, SNETP has been operating as an international non-profit association (AISBL) under the Belgian law pursuing a networking and scientific goals. It is recognised as a European Technology and Innovation Platform (ETIP) by the European Commission and gathers today over 100 European stakeholders from 25 different countries.

The SNETP Forum 2022 will aim at discussing and analysing recent technological innovations in different fields selected by the SNETP Scientific Committee as to cover major topics of interest to the stakeholders of SNETP:

  • SMRs
  • Nuclear codes and standards and supply chain
  • Digital and robotics
  • R&D&I facilities
  • Waste minimization and fuel cycle
  • The role of nuclear energy in mitigating climate change including non-electrical applications (hydrogen, heat, etc)

The aim of the event is to underpin the topics of interest to the European community and those that would eventually lead to R&D and innovation priorities and the harmonization of best practices within EU countries and beyond. Methodologies should be shared between LWR, Gen IV and ADS development for reinforcing innovation in nuclear technologies.
