Abstract: Knowledge management (NKM) tools continue to be enhanced to support information exchange and knowledge distribution. New tools for supporting NKM were initiated by international organizations, including a web-based knowledge portal, ODIN, developed by the JRC of the European Commission. This portal is dedicated to knowledge preservation and consolidation and includes a nuclear database where papers on WWERs are collected and electronically stored. A collection of around 100 papers selected from the ODIN database on property-property correlations for irradiated reactor pressure vessel steels has been reviewed in order to have a clear picture of the advances achieved so far in this field, and to determine existing gaps and open issues. It allows identifying research activities needed, as described in this paper. The review performed focus on two main areas. Namely, non-destructive examination of the embrittlement condition and fracture and Charpy toughness determination, including specimens size and constrain issues.
