Abstract

Over the coming years, new generations of reactors are going to be introduced with new reactor designs and new control room technologies. Also, extensive upgrades and modernisations of the current fleet of reactors will take place, introducing new control room technologies. In light of that, this chapter discusses what kind of HAMMLAB research is needed in the future. A set of relevant research topics are suggested, future research methods are discussed, and technical requirements for future studies in HAMMLAB are considered.
