dc.description.abstractThis presentation provides an overview of advances made in fast reactor fuel safety research in the last decades. MOX fuels were selected for many fast reactors. The need to minimise waste through partitioning and transmutation strategies has seen new fuel forms evolve, incluing fertile and non fertile targets to host the minor actinides. Despite the proven safety performance of MOX fuels, and the progress made in nitride and carbide driver fuels and also in minor actinide oxide fuel research programmes, improvements in knowledge and understanding of the safety performance of these fuels can be made. Above all, breakthroughs in simulation and modelling need to be harnessed to dedicated experiment, leading to even more reliable and robust engineering codes for the qualification of all fast reactor fuels.en_GB
