    Research output: Book/ReportReport


    This report gives the reasoning for establishing a Finnish research network on future nuclear energy systems. This research network would be closely linked to the ongoing international efforts, which are also described here. The Finnish Generation IV research network will provide especially: - A new generation of research scientists in the field. - Appreciated know how in the global forum on specific areas of materials engineering and science, reactor design and safety. - Innovative and advanced research facilities and simulation programs. - High technology industrial applications, spin-offs. - Opportunity for Finnish safety experts to contribute to the development of safety criteria on an international level. - Ability to assess national nuclear safety due to possible future nuclear solutions in the neighboring countries. This report was prepared in 2005-2006, with light updating late 2007. Based on this document and a roadmap work process a research plan (NETNUC) was prepared for the Sustainable Energy (SusEn) programme of Academy of Finland. In November 2007 the Academy decided to fund NETNUC with over one million euros for the period 2008-2011.
