European Atomic Energy Community - EURATOM

EURATOM implements research and training activities in the nuclear sector. It was set up in 1957 and is legally separated from the European Community (EC). It has its own Framework Research Programme, however managed by the common Community institutions. In FP7 Euratom there are two associated specific programmes, one covering the fields of fusion energy research, nuclear fission and radiation protection, and the other covering direct actions in the nuclear field undertaken by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the EC.
