Radioactive waste management CD-ROM

The European Commission, DG XI, has published an invitation to tender relating to the realization of a multimedia CD-ROM explaining the EU's radioactive waste management activities.

The objective is the realization of an information system on radioactive waste management in the European Union. While CD-ROM is probably the most suitable vehicle, the additional option of placing the content on a Web site on the Internet may also be considered.

The content of the information package should include the following areas:

- Radiation and its effects on human beings;
- Origin of radioactive wastes;
- Quantities of radioactive waste produced in the EU;
- Treatment and conditioning of waste;
- Transport of radioactive waste;
- Interim storage, disposal practices, site-selection for deep repositories, etc.

No specific design requirements concerning the scenarios are imposed. The spoken and visual text should be associated with the visual part, bearing in mind that six language versions are to be produced (English, French, German, Spanish, Swedish and Russian).

The work must be completed within 12 months. It should be conducted in close cooperation with the Commission services concerned (DG XI C/3), and take into account previous work carried out under the Commission's RTD programme on "Radioactive-waste management and disposal" (DG XII F/5).
