Use fundamental research to improve the simulation of nuclear fuels: the path towards safer reactors





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

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


INSPYRE is coming to an end. You can find the scientific results of the project published so far in the documents area. We are working on finalizing the synthesis deliverables of the project.


INSPYRE is coordinated by Marjorie Bertolus, CEA (FR)
