    Nuclear Fission Research (no public R&I funding is earmarked as nuclear!)

    Mostly @ Jožef Stefan Institute

    • Total: ~900 people, 45 MEUR annually • Budget 2014:

    • 70% research agency (PhD., research, infrastructure) • 15% FP EC, ERC • 15% consulting , including TSO to the nuclear regulatory

    body

    • Nuclear fission: ~ 50 (100) people, 2.5 MEUR

    Nuclear Fission Research Funding (no public R&I funding is earmarked as nuclear!)

    Slovenian Research Agency (competitive) • 15% Ph D support (3-4 years support for Ph D

    students)

    • 20% projects (blue sky, 2-3 years, 10% success) • 45% programs („stability“, reevaluations every 4-6

    years, 80% success)

    • 20% infrastructures (co-funding operations- maintenance of existing, competitive investments)

    • Competitive: publish or perish Nuclear Safety Administration (regulatory research)

    • No funding since 2010. Before up to 0.25 MEUR annualy, competitive.

    Summary for Slovenia (public funding sources for Nuclear Fission)

    • No public R&I funding earmarked Nuclear Fission:

    • Budgets for the requested categories traceable, but might require substantial efforts.

    • Only competitive funding available: • Research priorities defined by the funding agency! • Sustainability of nuclear (safety) research?
