Description in Proc. 6th Inf. Exch. Meeting
Partitioning and Transmutation (P&T) of long-lived radionuclides in nuclear waste is one of the research areas of the EURATOM Fifth Framework Programme (FP5) (1998-2002). The objective of the research work carried out under FP5 is to provide a basis for evaluating the practicability, on an industrial scale, of P&T for reducing the amount of long lived radionuclides to be disposed of. The content and the implementation of the EURATOM FP5 are briefly presented. The research projects on P&T selected for funding after the first call for proposals are then briefly described. They address the chemical separation of long-lived radionuclides and the acquisition of technological and basic data, necessary for the development of an accelerator driven system. Other projects are expected in response to the next call with a deadline in January 2001. International co-operation in P&T should be fostered. Collaboration is being implemented in this field between scientists of the European Union (EU) and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Finally, a brief outline of the discussions for the preparation of the Sixth Framework Programme (2002-2006) is given. 176 1.
