Network of excellence in nuclear waste management and disposal

Objective

A future efficient use of European resources in research and development of safe methods for final disposal of high-level radioactive waste calls for close interaction between European end users in planning of national programmes as well as in development of international projects. The proposal concerns the forming of a network of end users for the intended analysis of present status and future requirements in RTD for the three different rock media: salt, clay sediments and crystalline rock. The expected results are common and systematic basis for priorities and co-ordination of future European RTD work for radioactive waste management, and suggested areas and priorities for joint RTD projects.
The objective is develop a common and systematic basis for priorities and co-ordination of future European RTD work for Radioactive Waste Management and suggest areas and priorities for joint RTD projects. This will be accomplished by forming a Network of Excellence with the main European organisations given the national responsibilities to develop systems for safe handling and disposal of long-lived radioactive waster and by jointly working out a document that can serve as an aid for the planning and execution of future co-ordinated RTD activities between European implementors.
