Research projects and databases
Proyectos de investigación y bases de datos
One of the strengths of the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) is its support and patronage for joint research projects and programmes to exchange information in the areas of nuclear safety and waste management at the initiative of member countries, following a cost-sharing rule.
The Spanish Nuclear Safety Council participates in many scientific and technical research projects dealing with nuclear accidents. Project topics include thermal hydraulic simulations, hydrogen behaviour, structure and component aging and behaviour in fires and floods and the occupational exposure of staff during emergencies.
At the same time, the NEA runs projects to develop databases, calculation codes and tools for its handling and analysis, which makes available to experts from member countries.
