Eurofusion signatory the Lithuanian Energy Institute (LEI) carries out European fusion research initiatives in Lithuania. Key areas towards which LEI researchers contribute include safety assessment of nuclear fusion reactors, bolometer data analysis for JET data, radiation impact assessment.

The work package that looks into the safety assessment of nuclear fusion reactors includes assessment of the computer codes’ readiness for DEMO reactor safety assessment, deterministic safety analysis of the selected accident scenarios, FFMEA analysis of DEMO reactor, development of methodology for assessment of reliability, availability, maintainability and inspectability (RAMI) of DEMO, accumulation and distribution
of radioactive substances in DEMO reactor systems as well as assessment of decay heat of the components.
