    Within the Sixth Framework Program the Domain2 ECATS (Experiments on the Coupling of an Accelerator, a Target and a Subcritical blanket) of EUROTRANS is devoted to neutronic experiments for the demonstration of the conceptual feasibility of an Accelerator Driven System (ADS). The DM2 objectives were specified in full consultation with the design-team of the “Domain1 DESIGN” which is developing a reference design for a long-term European Facility for Industrial Transmutation (EFIT) together with a more detailed design of a short-term eXperimental demonstration of the technical feasibility of Transmutation in an Accelerator Driven sub-critical System (XT-ADS). After recollection of the ECATS objectives expected by DOMAIN1, progress and first assessments coming from the RACE and YALINA results are presented and the first stage of the GUINEVERE experimental program is detailed.
