The specialised accelerator facilities at JRC-IRMM for neutron data
measurements can now be accessed by international researchers through the

describes the accelerator facilities at JRC-IRMM.
Accurate neutron data are required for the assessment of safety aspects of
nuclear power installations or for the study of innovative concepts like
nuclear waste transmutation or accelerator-driven systems. The EUFRAT project
offers a total of 4500 supplementary data-taking hours for external users, of
which 3600 hours will be made available at the GELINA facility and 900 hours
at the Van de Graaff accelerator.
The EUFRAT project is a Specific Support Action funded under the Seventh
Framework Programme of the European Atomic Energy Community. EUFRAT runs from
1 November 2008 to 31 October 2012, and follows on from the successful FP6
project, NUDAME, which finished in March 2008.
