    Investigators were from 19 organisations in 14 Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) member countries (Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Czechia, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States) and from one organisation in an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) member state (the People’s Republic of China). The involvement of investigators from an IAEA member state was in the framework of an agreement with the IAEA Co-ordinated Research Project on Fuel Modelling in Accident Conditions (FUMAC). Also involved in the benchmark were: (a) Simone Massara, Ian Hill and Julie-Fiona Martin from the Nuclear Energy Agency (technical secretaries and junior scientist), as well as Boris Volkov who reviewed Volume 2 and provided clarifications; (b) Wolfgang Wiesenack from the OECD/NEAHalden Reactor Project (provider of experimental data); and (d) various observers, including Arndt Schubert from the European Commission Joint Research Centre and Mikhail Veshchunov from the IAEA.
