Abstract: ORIENT-NM answers the Euratom WP 2019-20 call NFRP-08, which requests to explore the possibility of establishing a European Joint Programme (EJP) on nuclear materials. Accordingly, ORIENT-NM will: 1. Produce a convincing strategic research agenda (SRA) for materials for all nuclear fission reactor generations (until 2040), consistent with national programmes and industrial needs, including supply chain constraints, paying attention to standardisation issues and verifying the availability of suitable infrastructures; 2. Elaborate an efficient EJP governance and legal structure, including attention for decision-making processes, intellectual property issues, promotion of innovation and analysis of potentially available resources, as well as an implementation scheme caring among others for quality assurance, SRA updating, knowledge and data management; all this considering different possible scenarios; 3. To identify appropriate ways of interactions between the EJP and other bodies and initiatives that bear connections with nuclear materials (stake-holders), including international organisations, standardisation bodies, technical safety organisations, fusion and non-nuclear energy communities, other associations, while addressing the issue of a coordinated use of nuclear materials infrastructures. All of the above will be done in close dialogue with Member States and European Commission, as well as all other stakeholders, in order to meet their requirements and expectations from an EJP on nuclear materials and raise the interest of identified research owners and research managers, by demonstrating the added value of such EJP.
