First steps

ACES is the new European Commission supported H2020-Euratom-1 project (Total EUR 5.45 million, 2020-24) that will advance the assessment of safety performance of safety-critical concrete infrastructure by addressing remaining scientific and technology gaps for the safe and long-term operation of nuclear power plants.
This collaborative project aims to clarify, enhance and unify methods of structural integrity assessment in support of long-term operation.
Partners include CEA, EDF and IRSN (France), CV ŘEŽ and CTU (Czech Republic), ENERGORISK (Ukraine), ENGIE and SCK CEN (Belgium), ZAG (Slovenia), ORNL (USA) and VTT (Finland) as coordinator.
