Purpose

Consult research community on its readiness to

prepare actions using the new instruments (NoE

and IPs) in order to:

  • assist in the preparation of work programme
  • assist in determining the scope of first calls
  • facilitate integration of key players

Assessment process

  • Pre-assessment by Commission servicesSorting and tracking eligible EoI by research topic
  • Assessment by experts (5 external + 2 EC)
    • Individual assessment of each EoI
    • Individual assessment of all EoI relevant to each research topic
  • Panel assessment in a ‘consensus’ meetingAssessment of all EoI eligible in each research topic
  • Reporting of results
    • Internal report
    • Publication on CORDIS

EoI - Management of Radioactive WasteStatistics

103 EoI submitted

43 EoI submitted addressing “other activities” or out of scope

60 EoI cover the objectives of the research areas:

Geological Disposal

Partitioning and Transmutation & other concepts to produce less waste

26 EoI suitable for the new instruments (4 NoE / 22 IPs )

34 EoI more suitable for “classical” instruments

eoi management of radioactive waste results

EoI - Management of Radioactive WasteResults

1. Geological Disposal (22 EoI = 4 NoE, 18 IPs)NoE to cover cross-cutting activities

Improvement of fundamental knowledge of key processesTo be covered by a few IPs

Developing and testing disposal technologyTo be covered by an IP

New and improved tools for performance & safety assessmentTo be covered by an IP; other IPs need coupling with research on processes

Governance processes: public concern to waste disposal“Classical” instruments more suitable for this topic

EoI - Management of Radioactive WasteResults

2. Partitioning & Transmutation

Largely covered, but only 4 IPs are suitable

Suggestion: make separation between

Partitioning: to be covered by an IP

Transmutation: to be covered by one/several IP(s)

‘Impact of P&T on waste management and geological disposal’:targeted project more suitable for “classical” instruments

3. Concepts to produce less waste

No EoI suitable for implementation using the new instruments

Topic would be best implemented using “classical” instruments

EoI - Radiation Protection

Main outcomes

  • only a small number “ready” or “mature”
  • no NoE “ready” - instrument not understood
  • most submissions not of sufficient scope, importance or ambition for new instruments
  • process disappointing in narrow context
  • process highly useful in a broader context

eoi radiation protection3
EoI - Radiation Protection

Topics “ready” for implementation using IPs

  • Epidemiological studies
  • Cellular and molecular biology
  • Medical exposures (in part)
  • Protection of the environment
  • Emergency management

Topics with potential

for becoming “ready” later

  • Radioecology
  • Protection of the workplace

Topics not suitable for use of new instruments

  • Natural sources of radiation
  • Risk management

eoi assessment conclusion on the exercise 1 2

EoI assessment Conclusion on the exercise (1/2)

Over 200 EoI treated in WM and RP

WM: several EoI suitable for new instruments, covering well the objectives and aims of the priority thematic

RP: only a small number suitable. Some topics to become “ready” later (Not sufficient scope or lack of ambition). NoE not well understood

Suitable EoI in WM have the ambition to develop sound technical basis for the demonstration of the safety of the ‘geological disposal’, or to reduce hazard of the waste

D:\data\PowerPoint\Raynal\NCP-EURATOM Meeting - CCAB 16.10.02.ppt

eoi assessment conclusion on the exercise 2 2

EoI assessment Conclusion on the exercise (2/2)

Non qualified EoI, i.e. neither sufficiently developed nor mature for early implementation in FP6, look moresuitable for ‘classical instruments’ (i.e.concepts to produce less waste)

Training aspects are inherently part of research and should be kept in IPs and NoE
