Impacts and objectives

The success of the GENIORS project depends on the achievement of three main objectives.

Developing scientific knowledge and expertise on nuclear fuel recycling, and taking account of waste reduction, environmental parameters and hypothetical accidental operations.
Increasing the safety of interim storage installations during normal operations, as well as in the case of a nuclear accident.
Fostering collaboration between all key stakeholders of the European separation chemistry community (researchers, industrials and policymakers), with the aim to carry out a more science-based strategy for nuclear management in the EU, and shape the next generations of separation chemists. Indeed, the GENIORS project involves training at least 10 PhD students and publishing around 60 articles in scientific journals.


Particular attention is given on disseminating and exploiting GENIORS’ results widely. Workshops and seminars are scheduled during the project to mobilise the critical approach of students. They will also have access to an online Knowledge Management Portal on nuclear chemistry topics. Lastly, travel bursaries will be made available for postgraduate students and young scientists to encourage them to attend international conferences and have the opportunity to present their work.

Coupled with its objectives, the project is expected to have impacts that span the next 30 years.
