This paper describes six projects, most of which are part of the research portfolio of the EERA
JPNM, devoted to qualification, modelling and development of structural and fuel materials for advanced and
innovative nuclear systems, with also two examples of projects addressing issues of cross-cutting interest
through fusion and fission. The main conclusion is that the benefit of the coordination under the umbrella of, in
this case, the EERA JPNM, is clearly felt in terms of better alignment of national programmes and subsequent
leveraging of institutional funding, to integrate Euratom support. Likewise, the benefit of addressing specific
issues of common interest for fusion and fission is not only beneficial because of cross-fertilisation, but also
because it allows more rational use of human and infrastructural resources, avoiding duplications.
