This technical opinion paper represents the consensus of the Committe on the Safety of Nuclear Installations (CSNI) Working Group on Human and Organisational Factors (WGHOF) on the state of research topics on human performance in new nuclear plant control room technology. It seeks to provide an overview of safety-significant human and organisational factors associated with developing reactor control room designs and to identify the types of research needed to address them. It takes into account the findings of the workshop as well as those from related work being carried out by other international regulatory and scientific organisations. The paper identifies eight broad topic areas which may warrant further research.
