  • to learn more about the European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, ‘Horizon Europe’ and ‘Euratom Research and Training’ programmes;
  • to take part in the discussions on the state of play of R&D and key challenges addressed at national, European and international levels, synergies and partnerships and future perspectives;
  • to share updated information on achievements of some 80 projects carried out since the previous conferences edition;
  • to interact within dedicated parallel and poster sessions, exhibitions, business and matchmaking interviews;
  • and to reward relevance and excellence performed in nuclear research and innovation;

Among the conferences’ sessions, two joint introduction and conclusion will provide a unique opportunity to set the scene and draw key recommendations at European and International levels.

Several high-level representatives will take part in the joint introduction of FISA 2022 – EURADWASTE ’22 (Tuesday morning), such as François Jacq, General Administrator of the CEA, William D. Magwood IV, Director General of OECD Nuclear Energy Agency and Joanna Drake, Deputy Director-General, DG Research & Innovation at the European Commission.
