Periodic Reporting for period 2 - ENTRUST (Building trust in nuclear waste management through participatory quantitative story telling)
Periodo di rendicontazione: 2019-08-01 al 2020-07-31
The ENTRUST project resulted in several scientific publications, collaborations with nuclear waste organizations in the EU and the U.S. for transferring the research innovations into their R&D programs, and the creation of a spin-off company, Decidia Research & Consulting, dedicated to the development and application of methods for uncertainty management, conflict management, models’ integration, and science-society interface.
To support the scientific objectives of the project, the researcher went through an extensive training program on the technical and scientific basis of NWM while at Stanford University. The training program consisted in auditing classes, reviewing the scientific literature, participating to workshops/conferences, and interviewing experts in the many fields relevant to the technical and social aspects of NWM.
The research activities of this project led to several publications, including five research papers, one book chapter, four conference papers, two conference posters and one commentary. The project also had significant policy impact with the ER collaborating with nuclear waste organizations of EU countries and U.S. national laboratories for transferring the research innovations of this project to their research and development programs.
