SAMOFAR (Safety Assessment of the Molten Salt Fast Reactor)
is one of the major Research and Innovation projects in the Horizon 2020 Euratom research programme. The grand objective of the project is to deliver a breakthrough in nuclear safety and nuclear waste management to make nuclear energy truly safe and sustainable. To this end, a new type of nuclear reactor, the Molten Salt Fast Reactor (MSFR), has been developed, whose key safety features will be demonstrated in the project.
