Abstract: On 6 March 2003 a Technical Exchange and Cooperation Arrangement in the field of Nuclear-Related Technology Research and Development was signed between the Department of Energy of the United States of America and the European atomic Energy Community. Several joint programs and co-operative research projects have been agreed in the mean time between DOE and Euratom. At the first Steering Committee meeting between DOE and JRC on 23 February 2004 in Brussels, it was decided to organise a workshop on Nuclear Data Needs for Generation IV Nuclear Energy Systems. This workshop was organised jointly by JRC on behalf of Euratom, DOE and AECL on 5-7 April 2005 in Antwerp, Belgium. The workshop was attended by 70 participants from 20 countries. During three consecutive days recent achievements were presented on sensitivity analysis, model calculations, estimates of uncertainties, and the present status of nuclear data bases. although detailed work on the different Generation IV systems did not yet start at the time of the workshop, it was impressive to see the amount of work and the results already achieved in connection with the development of these new systems. The local organisers are very grateful to all participants contributing with interesting presentations to the workshop and to the session chairmen for monitoring the lively discussions. I would like to thank the international advisory committee and especially Hussein Khalil (DOE) and Robert Speranzini (AECL) for their continuous support.
