ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
The division's objectives are to promote the advancement of knowledge and understanding of the fundamental physical phenomena characterizing nuclear reactors and other nuclear systems. The division encourages research and disseminates information through meetings and publications. Areas of technical interest include nuclear data, particle interactions and transport, reactor and nuclear systems analysis, methods, design, validation and operating experience and standards. The Wigner Award heads the awards program.

France is participating as one of the European voluntary contributors to the joint Europe-Japan so-called Broader Approach (BA) activities in support of ITER and DEMO activities, consisting of three projects: the engineering design and validation of a 14-MeV-neutron irradiation facility (IFMIF-EVEDA), the building of the International Fusion Energy Research Centre (IFERC), and the ITER Satellite Tokamak Programme (STP-JT-60SA). This paper gives an overview of the French contributions to the BA projects and reports on the present status of these projects since 2007.
