A dedicated effort on nuclear data validation and nuclear instrumentation techniques for Test Blanket Modules (TBM) in ITER is conducted as an integral part of Fusion for Energy's (F4E) programme to ensure validated nuclear analysis capabilities for fusion technology applications. It is closely linked to nuclear data development activities, which are jointly coordinated and conducted by F4E and nuclear data consortia formed by European research institutions. The current experimental activities, an integral copper validation experiment and gas production experiments in EUROFER elements, as well as activities on the development and testing of candidate nuclear detectors for TBM in ITER and the related design integration assessment are presented in this paper. © 2014 Fusion for Energy.
