Abstract: FOREWORD The European Network on Neutron Techniques Standardization for Structural Integrity (NET) ¿ established in 2002 ¿ is a network of European academic and industrial organizations, which jointly address structural integrity related problems in nuclear materials and components in relation to particular manufacturing processes, e.g. welding. The application of neutron diffraction for residual stress analyses and Small Angle Neutron Scattering (SANS) for the assessment of defects or precipitates in materials is the core activity of NET. Numerical assessment of stresses and the application of complementary or alternative testing techniques form the other pillars of the network. Currently some 35 European organizations and one partner from Korea contribute to the network. The present Enlargement and Integration Workshop is the third organized by the Joint Research Centre, Institute for Energy, in relation to the activities of NET. Its main theme was ¿Emerging SANS Applications in Support of Structural Integrity Assessment¿. The main purpose of JRC Enlargement and Integration Workshops is to promote scientific exchange and to foster collaboration between scientists from ¿old¿ and ¿new¿ EU member states and candidate countries. The institutes of the JRC have organized about 75 of these workshops in 2006. This workshop was attended by some 20 scientists and engineers representing organizations from nine countries, among which the Czech Republic, Romania, Turkey and Russia. During the one and a half days of the workshop a dense programme with 18 presentations has been worked through. More than half of the presentations were made by colleagues from new EU member states or candidate countries. About half of the contributions to the workshop were related to its main theme. The topics addressed in these presentations ranged from SANS instrumentation, including simulations and future developments, via specific applications of SANS in the materials engineering field to examples of GEN-IV nuclear materials and their integrity. The other half of the presentations at this workshop gave a wide overview of the capabilities of modern experimental and numerical methods in the assessment of residual stresses and structural integrity in relation to materials preparation and component production processes. As organizers we would like to thank all the contributors and attendees for their valuable contributions to this workshop, and we believe that the presentations and other documents in this publication are a valuable source of information for the reader.
