Abstract: The objective of the paper being the discussion of the sodium technology related activities in Europe to highlight the link between the EURATOM projects defined in its Framework Programme and the GIF projects, the document is structured into four main parts. After a short recall of the worldwide context - which is extremely favourable for the sodium technology - the SFR is shortly described within the context of the GenIV goals and the GIF governance. The description of the planned SFR R&D programme allows situating the specific EURATOM role in the work on advanced fuels, with the contribution of the JRC-ITU on fuel fabrication. The proposal for another EURATOM contribution is briefly presented, submitted initially as the Specific Targeted Research Project on Innovative Technologies for the Sodium cooled fast Reactor, which also points out the potential of other European organizations for the development of sodium technology.
