The 3rd Research Coordinated Meeting (RCM-3) Related to the IAEA CRP «Development, Characterization and Testing of Materials of Relevance to Nuclear Energy Sector Using Neutron Beams»
started on 13 May 2013 in the International Conference Hall. RCM-3 continues a series of meetings in the frame of IAEA
CRP-1575 (2009 – 2013). The overall objective of this CRP is to employ advanced neutron beam techniques for solving problems of current interest of materials research in nuclear energy sector, to standardize and qualify relevant experimental techniques and modelling methods and to promote and establish collaboration among participants of the project and beyond.
Presently the CRP-1575 includes 10 active research contracts and 9 research agreements with overall representation of 18 Member States. The 1st RCM was held from 31 May to 4 June 2010 in Vienna (Austria). The 2nd RCM was held from 19 to 23 September 2011 in Beijing, China. The present meeting is organized by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (FLNP JINR
) and ROSATOM
State Nuclear Energy Corporation.
