Abstract

The overall objective of the coordination action OBRA is to assess the feasibility of creating an observatory for long-term governance on radioactive waste management in Europe. The OBRA project explores whether such an observatory is a useful mechanism for all stakeholders - firstly, to access to the knowledge generated by successive EU research programmes, both in scientific and social sciences fields; secondly, to promote the most appropriate forms of interaction between them; and thirdly, to jointly define how results from research, training and development in radioactive waste management and disposal are formulated and how their dissemination is managed.
The key objectives of OBRA are: (1) to establish a European networking platform between universities, implementers, stakeholders and civil society in general, (2) to develop a model of a European observatory for long-term governance in radioactive waste management, (3) to test the efficiency of a pilot training package as a mechanism for the transfer and dissemination of knowledge, and (4) to make recommendations on how the model of the observatory could be implemented.
