  • Community's research and development programme on radioactive waste management and storage : Shared-cost action (1990-94) : Annual progress report, 1993


In December 1989, the Council of Ministers of the European Union adopted the fourth R&D programme on management and storage of radioactive waste for the period 1990 to 1994. Contract negotiations for selected research proposals led to the signature of contracts with some 115 bodies in charge of carrying out the working programme. This annual report, covering 100 contracts running in 1993, presents for each contract the objectives, the whole research programme and a synopsis of progress and results achieved as prepared by the contractor under the responsibility of the project leader. Part A deals with the study of management systems, treatment and characterisation of waste, general aspects of waste disposal and the safety of geological disposal systems. The ongoing activities on construction and operation of underground facilities in candidated geological media for disposal are presented in Part B.
