Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) received a post-evaluation of the third medium-/long-term plan (from FY2015 to FY2021) and pre-evaluation of the fourth medium-/long-term plan (from FY2022 to FY2028) from the "Evaluation Committee of Research Activities for High Temperature Gas-cooled Reactor (hereinafter referred to as "HTGR") and Related Hydrogen Production Technology" (hereinafter referred to as "Evaluation Committee") which consists of specialists in the fields of evaluation subjects of HTGR and related heat application technologies. As a result, for the post-evaluation of the third medium-/ long-term plan, two of the ten technical committee members concluded a score of "S", seven members concluded "A" and one member concluded "B". The comprehensive evaluation concluded a score of "A". On the other hand, one of the two humanities and social sciences members concluded a score of "B", one members concluded "C". The comprehensive evaluation concluded a score of "B". For the pre-evaluation of the fourth medium-/long-term plan, although there were some items that several evaluation committee members rated as "needs improvement," the majority of the committee members judged the plan to be appropriate. This report describes the members of the Evaluation Committee, assessment items, assessment results and JAEA's measures following the assessment.
