Working Groups

Development of the experimental capabilities in JHR is being overseen by three international Working Groups, set up with the following objectives:

  1. To identify open issues in nuclear fuel and materials development

  2. To prepare a ranking grid summarising participants’ common interests and relative priorities

  3. To define an initial experimental programme (in JHR and/or in other existing MTRs or labs) to validate/benchmark JHR’s experimental devices and irradiation characteristics

The three Working Groups cover:

  • Fuel R&D issues

  • Material R&D issues

  • Technology issues for the experimental devices

The UK has representatives sitting on each of these Working Groups.
