|Abstract:||Fast reactors are the basis for a long term sustainable energy policy, as has been recognized at Euroepan level within the Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan. On the initiative of the Sustainable Nuclear Energy Technology Platform (SNE-TP), a SET Plan industrial initiative named ESNII (European Sustainable Nuclear Energy Industrial Initiative) gather the main research industry players in the field. The Euratom Treaty provides a framework for all civil nuclear activities and the Euratom Framework Programmes provides financial support to several European research projects, amongst them fast reactor programme initiatives. Investigations cover the fields of advanced fuel concepts, their safety relevant properties and irradiation behaviour, as well as separation strategies for closing the fuel cycle and training and education programmes. The results are integrated, at the international level, within the Generation IV International Forum activities.|
