The official kickoff meeting of the HARMONISE project took place in Brussels on 19 and 20 September 2022 with the participation of all partner organisations along with representatives of the European Commission and invited guests. The physical meeting was held at the premises of the Permanent Representation of Lithuania to the European Union, while the event allowed for virtual participation.
The project puts forward a holistic approach for studying the body of knowledge required to accomplish harmonization and standardization of methodologies, codes and standards as well as the assessment of nuclear reactor components. The basis for HARMONISE activities will be the outcomes of relevant research and cooperation activities in standardization and nuclear safety considering also the lessons learnt from the stress tests performed in the EU. HARMONISE will examine issues related to qualification, standardization, Verification and Validation (V&V) and licensing of fission and fusion installations, while taking into account stakeholder involvement.
