NDA Radioactive Waste Management Directorate (RWMD) has worked alongside other European Waste Managenent Organisations (WMOs) to develop a strategic list of research activities related to implementing geological disposal.
The draft strategic research agenda is now available for consultation until 28 January 2011.
The draft document prioritises proposed collaborative working among EC research organisations. The work is part of the “Implementing Geological Disposal of Radioactive Waste Technology Platform” (IGD-TP), which we participate in.
Members of this collaborative working group aim to:
- build confidence in the safety of geological disposal solutions among European citizens and decision-makers
- encourage the establishment of waste management programmes that integrate geological disposal as the accepted option for the safe long-term management of long-lived and/or high-level waste
- facilitate access to expertise and technology and maintain competence in the field of geological disposal for the benefit of member states
