Abstract: The JRC-IE effort towards Preservation and Knowledge Management in the specific field of RPV embrittlement is a very important tasks and it is discussed in this paper. The challenge to collect all available information about the behavior of WWER reactors is tackled with a systematic approach; as required in this phase of the plants life. In fact, the information available is for a significant extent available with experts in the specialized field which are close to or even within retirement, so the preservation and use of their knowledge and experience is becoming more and more difficult or nearly impossible in few years. The documentation d-base has been stored and serves as appropriate to suit the requirement of the key projects SAFELIFE, COVERS, PERFECT, etc. Created database was put on the ODIN portal which is provide by European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC) Petten to the European energy research community. It contains engineering database, document management sites and other information related to European research in the area of nuclear and conventional energy. The results of the project is accessible (via https://odin.jrc.nl/doma) and useable also for young specialists of the new generation for PWR or WWER plants in all countries since they would be able to be acquainted not only with current views and knowledge but also with its history and background, etc. Further, these materials can serve as a basis for elaboration of a state-of-the-art report on radiation damage in WWER reactor pressure vessels steels.
