Abstract: The European Network on Neutron Techniques Standardization for Structural Integrity (NeT) - established in 2002 - is a network of European academic and industrial organizations. The network participants jointly address structural integrity related problems in nuclear materials and components. The application of neutron beam based measurement techniques for the assessment and characterization of the state of materials and components 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 was the 4th in a series organized by the Joint Research Centre, Institute for Energy, in relation to the activities of NeT. Its main theme was "Residual stress: Measurement, Prediction and Relevance for Integrity". 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 almost 80 such workshops in 2007. The 4th NeT related workshop was attended by some 25 scientists and engineers representing organizations from ten countries, among which the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Turkey and Russia. During the one and a half days of the workshop a dense programme with 14 presentations has been worked through. Half of these presentations were given by colleagues from new EU member states or candidate countries. The majority of the presentations covered the topics residual stress measurement techniques and numerical stress assessment methods. A few papers addressed - at least in part - analysis methods for experimental results. Finally, one presentation showed residual stress measurements in functionally graded materials. The contents of the presentations stimulated very lively and interesting discussions among the participants. The questions and further contributions were such comprehensive that at the end of the workshop the allocated time did not suffice, even though one of the planned contributions had to be cancelled. This reflects that this workshop was experienced as very interesting by the participants. As organizers we would like to thank all the contributors and attendees for their valuable presentations and contributions the interesting discussions during this workshop. We hope that the presentations and other documents in these proceedings will be consumed by the reader with as much interest as they were followed by the participant during the life presentations.
