Abstract: Adopted by the European Union in 2008, the Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) is the strategic framework to accelerate the development and deployment of cost-effective low carbon technologies for the period 2010-2020 in the perspective of market implementation by 2020 and 2050. Sustainable nuclear fission is one of the low carbon energy technologies prioritized by the SET-Plan. In 2011, the European Commission published a Materials Roadmap enabling Low Carbon Energy Technologies. The objective is to complement and expand the Technology Roadmaps developed in the context of the SET-Plan as the basis for its implementation. It puts forward key materials research and innovation activities to advance energy technologies for the next 10 years. It serves as a programmatic guide for research and development activities in the field of materials for energy applications for both the European Union's research and innovation program and Member State programs. The objective of this contribution is to summarize the materials roadmap prepared for nuclear fission technology. The road-mapping exercise has been conducted by taking into account the two established instruments for the SET-Plan implementation, namely the European Industrial Initiative, EII (for nuclear fission it is the European Sustainable Nuclear Energy Industrial Initiative, ESNII) and the European Energy Research Alliance, EERA (for nuclear fission it is the Joint Program Nuclear Materials, JPNM) as well as the European Technology Platform (for nuclear fission it is the Sustainable Nuclear Energy Technology Platform, SNETP).
