The Euradwaste '08 conference in Luxembourg on 20-22 October 2008 brought together researchers, radioactive waste management organisations, policy-makers, regulators, engineers and educators to discuss the underground disposal of spent nuclear fuel and long-lived highlevel radioactive waste as well as the impact of advanced fuel cycles (partitioning and transmutation) on deep geological repositories. Three days of presentations, poster sessions, panel discussions and question-and-answer sessions focused on the full spectrum of issues facing implementation of this waste management option.
The first day of the conference dealt with the strategic, economic and socio-political aspects of geological disposal, and presentations were universally followed by lively discussions. As the strategy and needs of each country vary so widely, finding common ground to some of the issues on a European level proved to be a challenging task.
