IAEA Coordinated Research Projects (CRPs) bring together scientists representing institutes in Member States to collaborate on a focussed research topic that is of shared interest and is important to the mission of the Agency. A CRP is normally approved for a period of 3-5 years and involves 8-15 laboratories, research teams or institutions. Most CRPs involve 3 Research Coordination Meetings (RCMs) where participants are brought together. The IAEA supports the cost of the RCMs, but only very limited funds are available for direct research support, and this only for participants from developing countries.
In the case of CRPs organized by the A+M Data Unit the goals of the CRP may include the establishment of a particular database, data generation, compilation and assessment for specific types of A+M collision processes, or classes of such processes, etc. A CRP generally results in a significant amount of new data on collision processes or structural properties of elements or materials relevant to fusion energy research. In addition a CRP may provide detailed critical assessments of the existing data and selection of sets of data that are recommended as the best available at the time of the assessment. The CRP results of adequate accuracy and completeness are stored in the ALADDIN database and published in the IAEA publication series Atomic and Plasma-Material Interaction Data for Fusion (APID).
During the last 10 years the IAEA A+M Data Unit has been running about 3-4 active CRPs at any time.
Plans are in an early stage; no meetings yet.
