The NOMATEN CoE will benefit from numerous collaborations with external organisations, projects and initiatives – both nationally and internationally – that will help to boost its capacity and impact.

In Poland, the CoE will collaborate with the following institutions and projects:

  • The ERDF funded 25 m euro CERAD project to establish a new 30 MeV cyclotron centre dedicated to the design and synthesis of molecularly targeted radiopharmaceuticals, which is coordinated by NCBJ and involves University of Warsaw, Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology, Warsaw Medical University, Jagiellonian University Collegium Medicum and Białystok Medical University (2016-2020)
  • The Polish Nuclear Energy Programme where NCBJ is expected to provide a key technical support office
  • Institute of Electronic Material Technology in Warsaw and AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow, where NCBJ collaborates on high-temperature alloys for various industrial applications
  • Industrial companies from the metals sector (e. g. KGHM) to develop ore analysis systems
  • The national funded HTRPL project to develop high-temperature reactors for industrial applications together with AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow
  • The national funded ATOMSHIELD project to increase the durability and effectiveness of concrete shields for nuclear power stations together with the Institute of Fundamental Technological Research

To broaden its impact, the CoE will also support the following international initiatives:

  • The MELODIE project between NCBJ and CEA that has developed an advanced probe for the MARIA reactor to study the effects of radiation and high-temperature on different material samples (e. g. cladding used for light-water reactors). This continues work begun on the now closed OSIRIS reactor.
  • The H2020 IVMR project involving NCBJ, CEA and VTT which is investigating severe accident management strategies for existing and future nuclear power stations and FP7 NURESAFE which developed a nuclear reactor safety simulation platform
  • The FP7 SOPHIA project involving CEA and VTT which is using a concentrated solar energy source for high-temperature electrolysis of steam to produce hydrogen
  • The France Life Imaging network coordinated by CEA which provides an open access to the academic, clinician and industrial community to state-of-the-art in-vivo imaging technologies and integrated services
  • The NeurATRIS project coordinated by CEA investigating translational research in neurology, including in vivo assessment of disease processes and therapeutic efficacy
  • The H2020 VINCO project coordinated by NCBJ and involving CEA which provides capacity building in nuclear technologies to Central European countries
  • The H2020 BRILLIANT project involving NCBJ aimed at identifying the barriers to nuclear power development in Baltic region and proposing ways to overcome them
  • The FP7 ALLIANCE project that involved NCBJ and CEA aimed at designing a Generation IV reactor in cooperation with Poland’s Visegrad Group partners (Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary)
