Abstract

The EU's Network of Excellence NULIFE (Nuclear plant life prediction) has been launched under the EURATOM FP6 Program. NULIFE will help provide a better common understanding of the factors affecting the lifetime of nuclear power plants which, together with associated management methods, will help facilitate extensions to the safe and economic lifetime of existing nuclear power plants. In addition, NULIFE will help in the development of design criteria for future generations of nuclear power plant. Led by VTT, the five-year project has a total budget in excess of EUR 8 millions, with partners drawn from leading research institutions, technical support organisations, power companies and manufacturers throughout Europe.
