The focus this year was on physics, with among others detailed presentations on the thermophysical properties of the nuclear fuel, and on the physics of the actinides. G. Lander presented also the planned extension of the buildings, which should allow the Institute to be ready for the coming challenges, concerning in particular the safety of the Gen IV nuclear fuels. The final report of the Advisory Group should be ready before the end of December.
