INSPYRE will focus on the investigation of fast reactor MOX fuel to support the development and qualification of the fuels for the future generation of reactors. The project will:

evocative picture

use carefully designed modelling and experimental investigations to accurately describe basic phenomena occurring in the fuel
evocative picture

characterize precisely selected key irradiated fuel samples to fill identified knowledge gaps
evocative picture

combine basic and technological research to enhance the reliability of empirical laws deduced in the past from irradiation tests
evocative picture

implement the new models and data obtained in the fuel performance codes used for the design future reactors
evocative picture

create opportunities for young scientists to acquire knowledge and experience the nuclear materials field and to exchange with experts

The objectives of INSPYRE will be achieved by a well-balanced consortium from universities, research and industrial organisations already collaborating in the EERA JPNM, further augmented by a dedicated user group stemming from ESNII representatives, utilities and fuel vendors.

INSPYRE is coordinated by Marjorie Bertolus, CEA (FR)
