ノルウェーにおけるOECD/NEAハルデン計画 : 非原発国の多国間原子力研究拠点の形成に関する一考察

OECD/NEA Halden Reactor Project in Norway : A Study of Establishment of a Multinational Nuclear Center for Excellence in a Country without NPPs
In the 1 970s, there was political consensus in Norway on not promoting nuclear energy. Despite this, the Norwegian government continues to maintain a multinational nuclear research and development program called the “Halden Reactor Project,” which was developed toward the end of the 1950s. The diversification of nuclear research and development activities after the 1970s made it possible f or the OECD countries to participate in the Halden Reactor project whenever they wanted and based on their own interests. In the late 1970s, when the Norwegian government decided not to introduce nuclear power as the national base load of electricity in the near future, or rather because of the Norwegian decision not to introduce nuclear power, the Halden Research Project became a useful avenue for Norwegians to maintain nuclear technology without having nuclear power plants.
