An amendment of the Grant Agreement has been signed by DG-RTD (European Commission) and IRSN (coordinator’s organisation) in early April. This amendment was necessary for two reasons:
-Change of legal names of partners KIT-G (named KIT in the newsletter) in Germany (instead of FZK), Tractebel Engineering in Belgium (instead of Suez-Tractebel), NUBIKI in Hungary (instead of VEIKI),
-Entry of a 42nd partner: KINS (Korean Institute for Nuclear Safety) Technical Safety Organisation in Korea.
A change occurred in the Management Team: Prof. Sandro Paci (University of Pisa, Italy) is replacing Prof. Bal Raj Sehgal (University of Stockholm, Sweden) for coordination of the WP2 “Spreading of Excellence”. Prof. Sehgal’s work will focus on the scientific review of the SARNET Book on severe accidents.

The 1st meeting of the Steering Committee, in Paris on March 23, gathered the representatives of the 10 members (AREVA NP GmbH, CEA, CIEMAT, EDF, GRS, INRNE, IRSN, KIT, KTH, PSI) to examine the outcomes of the 1st network period and the perspectives. The 2nd period of the network has started on April 1, 2010, for a duration of 18 months (thus until Sept.2011). The Joint programme of Activities (JPA2) for this new period is under elaboration and should be released in May.
