Research output: Contribution to journalReview Articlepeer-review


The EU's NULIFE (Nuclear Plant Life Prediction) Network of Excellence has been launched under the Euratom FP6 programme. NULIFE's aim is to help to provide a better understanding of the factors affecting the lifetime of nuclear power plants. Together with associated management methods, this will facilitate extensions to the safe and economic lifetime of existing nuclear power plant. NULIFE will also contribute to 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 €8m, with partners drawn from leading research institutions, technical support organisations, power companies and manufacturers throughout Europe.
