CIELO opens new horizons for world-wide standardisation of nuclear data

20 November, 2013

Experts coming from the JRC, the Nuclear Energy Agency of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD-NEA), the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), EU Member States, the United States, Japan, China and Russia, indicated their commitment to CIELO, opening a new horizon for standardisation in nuclear data.

CIELO is a pilot project of the OECD-NEA, coordinated by Los Alamos National Laboratory (United States) and it aims at fostering nuclear data advances by using the joint expertise of the nuclear data community.

CIELO pilot isotopes 1H, 16O, 56Fe, 235U, 238U, 239Pu will be addressed as highest priority nuclides.

The JRC will be in charge of two of the five nuclides and will contribute to accurate measurements thanks to its accelerator facilities and with expert advice for the composition of the data file.
