Next meeting: 13-14 February 2019 (NEA HQ, Boulogne Billancourt, France)


Under the guidance of the Nuclear Science Committee (NSC) and under the mandate of the Working Party on Scientific Issues of the Fuel Cycle (WPFC), the objective of the Expert Group on Innovative Structural Materials (EGISM) is to conduct joint and comparative studies to support the development, selection and characterisation of innovative structural materials that can be implemented in advanced nuclear fuel cycles, under extreme conditions such as high temperature, high dose rate and corrosive chemical environment and long service lifetime.

The objectives of the Expert Group are:

The Expert Group will particularly work closely with NSC Working Party on Multi-scale Modelling of Fuels and Structural Materials for Nuclear Systems (WPMM).


Consistent with the above objectives, the scope of the Expert Group includes:

State-of-the-art assessment of specific areas to be considered as priority areas of research;

Experimental protocols and Standards and share of available experimental installations;

Common experimental database; and
