Reactor physics experiments are required for the design of a Fast Spectrum Transmutation Experimental Facility MYRRHA/FASTEF working in subcritical mode and in critical mode. Reactor physics experiments aim to validate a methodology for on-line subcriticality monitoring. For this purpose, building on the former activities accomplished in the previous FP6 project GUINEVERE, investigations on the subcritical VENUS-F (lead/uranium) cores coupled with the GENEPI-3C accelerator will be extended. This activity has been planned in within the framework of the on-going FREYA (Fast Reactor Experiments for hYbrid Applications) FP7 project. This paper presents the current progress of the project and the future plans.
