CHANDA Amendments

As a consequence of the evolution of the project and some difficulties found during its execution the CHANDA Governing Board has approved 2 proposals of amendments for the CHANDA project.

First Amendment

Changes of responsibilities/resources of WP3, WP7, WP9, WP10 and New partner (in negotiation with EC) The main objective of the project CHANDA (solving CHAllenges in Nuclear Data) is to address the challenges in the field of nuclear data for nuclear applications and support the sharing of research infrastructures and capabilities at EU Member States level. The project has unfortunately encountered a few difficulties related with the commissioning of a laboratory from CNRS, CACAO located at Orsay, close to Paris. CNRS has investigated all possibilities to reduce to a maximum its financial and technical impact on the project CHANDA. Modifications resulting from a transfer of tasks and/or funding to other partners have been endorsed by the consortium Executive Committee held on 6 February 2015 and Governing Board on 29 April 2015 and are mainly related to:

  • Reorganization of WP3 (responsibilities of each task/deliverables and each participant clarified).
  • Withdrawal of CNRS from WP9 and reassignment of resources
  • Change of task responsible institutions within WP10
  • Small change on the description of NFS tasks within WP7
  • Addition of a new partner: Universidad de Sevilla.

Second Amendment

Change of the project duration (announced to EC) The Governing Board decided in its annual meeting of October 18th, 2016 to propose to the EC an extension of the project duration by 12 months. After discussions with EC the request was reduced to 6 months extension of the project duration. This extention has been aprobed by the EC on September 2017.

The initial motivation was to be able to complete the NFS commissioning and make first experiments at NFS, considered as a major milestone for the CHANDA project. NFS commissioning has been delayed because technical difficulties to build and to get licensing authorization by the French nuclear regulatory body with considers NFS a nuclear facility. In addition, several other tasks risk to need more time to analyse experimental information collected at the very end of the present contractual project end date. Also we hope to be more efficient in the use of resources by applying human resources when actually needed, and to achieve a better integration of WP1 and WP2 solutions with the growing experience on new H2020 instruments for joint programing.
