Summary
The fonds comprises documents written and collected by Hendrik de Bruijn and cover the period from 1940 to 1968. The material mainly concerns the OECD Dragon Project (High Temperature Reactor Project). In his capacity as head of the Research Division of the Dragon Project, the items de Bruijn collected are mostly of scientific, physical and physiochemical interest. Also included are a large number of Dragon Project reports, minutes of the meetings of the Project's Board of Management (1960-1965) and correspondence exchanged with the various national research centres taking part in the project
Biographical or historical data
Hendrik de Bruijn was secretary of the Dutch National Commission for the Euratom research programme since 1958. This Commission organised research for the high temperature gas-cooled reactor project at the research centre in Petten and focused the work mainly on irradiation matters. From 1959 onwards de Bruijn was Head of the Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Division for the Dutch contract partner, the 'Reactor Centrum Nederland' in the OECD/Euratom joint venture, the 'Dragon Project'. The OECD High Temperature Reactor Dragon Project was established in 1959 as an international joint undertaking by Austria, Denmark, Euratom (representing Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxemburg and the Netherlands), Norway, Swede, Switzerland and the United Kingdom with the aim of developing a high temperature gas cooled reactor. It based its work on the studies that the United Kingdom Energy Authority (UKEA) had undertaken since 1956 at its Atomic Energy Research Establishment (AERE) in Harwell. All participating nations had a strong political motivation in this European enterprise. The Netherlands especially saw in the Dragon Project a political instrument for involving the United Kingdom in continental Europe and regarded it mainly as a long-term research and development activity.
