On 17 June, 28 new grant agreements were signed under the Euratom Research and Training Programme 2021-2022. Nine beneficiaries from Ukraine are participating in eight of the 28 projects launched.
“These projects will contribute to the EU’s efforts to further develop technological leadership and promote excellence in nuclear research and innovation,” said Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth.
The European Commission also launched the co-funded new European Partnership for research in radiation protection and detection of ionising radiation, PIANOFORTE, aiming towards a safer use and improved protection of people and the environment. The total budget for the call is €100 million.
The Commission has received 51 proposals covering all 16 topics as defined in the Euratom Work Programme 2021-2022. These activities will contribute to improving nuclear safety, radiation protection, and safe use of nuclear power and of non-power applications of ionising radiation.
The new Euratom projects are spread across 25 Member States, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Norway, Japan, and the United States.
The Euratom Research and Training Programme (2021-2025) is a nuclear research and training programme aiming to improve nuclear safety, security and radiation protection and fusion energy research. It complements Horizon Europe and uses the same instruments and rules for participation. The budget is €1.38 billion to implement the new programme for the period 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2025.
