    The SAFEST facilities are able to perform unique experiments aimed to investigate severe accident phenomenology of LWR reactors. The objective of the present work is assessing the possibility to extend the application field of the SAFEST facilities to the Gen IV fast reactor technology issues, in particular focusing on the technologies that are part of the European Union’s Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan). The SAFEST partners have identified the most relevant phenomena influencing severe accident sequences and expressed their assessment on the possibility to investigate them in the SAFEST facilities. This report has to be intended as a first step towards a detailed roadmap for R&D concerning severe accident for GEN IV reactors.
