The European nuclear R&D program
Historically, the European nuclear R&D program, Euratom, has funded advanced nuclear research infrastructures and innovative projects in all sectors of the nuclear industry. Today, in its nuclear fission component, it is mainly used to promote research
on nuclear safety, radiation protection and radioactive waste management.
Successor to Horizon 2020, Horizon Europe is the framework program for research and training that brings together all areas of research and innovation funded by the EU, except for Euratom. With 95.5 billion euros for the period 2021-2027, Horizon
Europe is based on three pillars: scientific excellence, global challenges and industrial competitiveness, and innovative Europe.
