Research potentialities

ALFRED will be managed as a research infrastructure.

This will allow scientists and technicians gathering from academia, research, industry, safety organizations and utilities, to jointly exploit such an unique platform to familiarize with the technology. Researches and tests will be conducted, that will extend the knowledge bases and support the development of new solutions for components and systems standing on the concept of the Lead Fast Reactor.

To this regard, ALFRED will also act as a catalyser for joint programming, fostering the collaboration between European countries at a higher level,  based on common policies.

As a result, ALFRED will be a European asset, generating excellent science and multiplying innovation by serving the scientific and technological communities, which will then take a leading position.
