This project is supported by the European Commission, it will last 3 years.
SNETPFORWARD brings together 10 partners with the aim to support the European Commission to establish a SET Plan 2.0 in close collaboration with the other ETIPs.
SNETPFORWARD will allow SNETP to strengthen its position into the European nuclear and non-nuclear research ecosystem by:
- Ensuring nuclear fission remains EU’s largest, secure, competitive, flexible and reliable supplier of low-carbon electricity together with renewables.
- Exploring alternative nuclear applications: hydrogen production, process heat for heavy industry, district heating and medical applications in addition to reliable, flexible and sustainable electricity generation.
- Developing new cross-cutting technologies, processes and synergies: new designs including small, modular and advanced reactors with the potential to close the fuel cycle, digitalisation, artificial intelligence, new manufacturing routes, harmonisation of codes and standards.
- Focusing on key enablers to deliver the IWG ambitions: EU high quality skills and competences, R&D infrastructures, knowledge management and international cooperation.
Calls will be launched to fund studies on cross-sectorial issues in link with nuclear.
