SOTERIA is an ongoing H2020 project which proposes a comprehensive research approach in order to enable nuclear power plant operators, as well as regulators, to better understand and thereby predict the ageing phenomena occurring in reactor pressure vessels and internal steels to ultimately ensure a safe long-term operation of existing European nuclear power plants. The SOTERIA approach is based on an end-user perspective and has planned the set-up of simulation-oriented experiments aiming to validate models at different scales.
The second edition of the SOTERIA newsletter focuses on two important and successful events which took place recently: the second End-Users Group meeting, held in June in Fontainebleau, as well as the first meeting of the Technical Review Committee, held in April at the European Commission in Brussels.
This issue also presents the publications and presentations prepared by the SOTERIA team members since project start. Further information is available on their public website.
Please note that the SOTERIA End-User Group is still open to equipment manufacturers, vendors, and operators.
