Parliamentary questions
25 February 2010
Answer given by Ms Geoghegan-Quinn on behalf of the Commission

Piezo-nuclear effects have never been the subject of a research project funded under the Euratom Framework Programme (Euratom) for nuclear research and training activities, which is an applied programme in the area of nuclear science and technology.

The basis for funding under this programme is competitive proposals by multi-partner consortia on a range of nuclear science and technology topics. Proposals are evaluated by independent experts. In this context, if within the scope of the Euratom programme, proposals are welcome from proponents of piezo-nuclear reactions and will be assessed accordingly on their merits.

Frontier research on such a topic could also potentially be the subject of an application to the European Research Council (ERC). ‘Bottom-up’ applications to the ERC may be made in any field of research under the sole criterion of excellence. However, research proposals within the scope of Annex A of the Euratom Treaty, namely those directed towards nuclear energy applications, should be submitted to relevant calls under the Euratom Framework Programme.
