Abstract

The main IAEA program implementation tools in the area of fuel engineering are Coordinated Research Projects (CRP), Technical Meetings (TM), Expert Reviews, and Databases - IAEA-HOTLAB Database of PIE Facilities and NEA-IAEA International Fuel Performance Experiments (IFPE) Database. This report provides information about organization and implementation practices of these activities, and summarizes their major outputs including all IAEA publications made in 2005-2015. Since 2011 a special attention is being paid to projects related to the IAEA Nuclear Safety Action Plan initiated after Fukushima accident, that include Coordinated Research Projects “Fuel Modelling in Accident Conditions” (CRP FUMAC) and “Analysis of Options and Experimental Examination of Fuels for Water-Cooled Reactors with Increased Accident Tolerance” (CRP ACTOF).
