Nucleareurope is involved in a series of projects and partnerships, some of which are funded by the EU.
Regarding EU funds, Horizon Europe is the EU’s key funding programme for research and innovation. It tackles climate change, helps to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and boosts the EU’s competitiveness and growth. The total budget of Horizon Europe is €95.5 billion.
Around €1.38 billion of this is dedicated to EU-funded research on nuclear issues, under the Euratom Treaty (Euratom Research and Training Programme). The share of this allocated to nuclear fission and radioprotection indirect actions, i.e. open to nuclear industry participation, is €288 million. The Euratom programme runs from 1 January 2021 – 31 December 2025.
