Welcome to the NUGENIA website!
NUGENIA is an association dedicated to the research and development of nuclear fission technologies, with a focus on Generation II and III nuclear plants. It gathers stakeholders from industry, research, safety organisations and academia, committed to develop joint R&D projects in the field. NUGENIA builds on the past success of a European Commission-supported network called NULIFE, and integrates a working group from SNETP, the Sustainable Nuclear Energy Technology Platform; it also targets to join with the SARNET network. The work of NUGENIA is organised in seven technical areas, within a general scope defined by the Strategic Research Agenda published by SNETP, the European stakeholder forum for nuclear technology.
This website presents the organisation, members and technical focus of NUGENIA. It will be regularly upgraded with new features, so keep posted – a good way to do is to register to our newsletter.

I am honored to be the first President of NUGENIA. NUGENIA is a unique initiative to help the whole nuclear community to cooperate in the R&D space for the benefit of Gen II&III NPPs, and to coordinate our respective contributions.
The integration of several pre-existing groups makes it even more attractive, as it will allow us to further build on this collective experience and help us consolidate and optimise our work processes.
I am confident in the bright future of NUGENIA to serve our industry and will do my best to make it happen.
Please join and help us all implement this timely initiative.Jean-Pierre West,
EDF R&D Senior Vice President
