Event description
Join us at the virtual launch of the Radioactive Waste Management Research Support Office

About this Event

All researchers with an interest in radioactive waste geological disposal are invited to a series of morning workshops on 16-18 September

The 3-day programme includes:

  • Introduction to the RWM geodisposal research strategy and RSO activities
  • Introduction to the RSO funding portfolio and calls starting October 2020
  • Announcement of 2021 PhD project funding call
  • Case study presentations of RWM funded research
  • Plenary talk from Dr Allan Hedin, Manager of Safety Assessments at SKB, Sweden
  • Research proposal development workshop: Gas Generation, Migration and Reactivity in radioactive waste disposal

The research development workshop will be a sandpit event for researchers to help develop the funding call for this topic area

Details of the full programme, including breakout sessions, will be available on our website

Geological disposal involves isolating radioactive waste deep inside a suitable rock volume to ensure that no harmful quantities of radioactivity ever reach the surface environment. A geological disposal facility will be a highly engineered structure consisting of multiple barriers that will provide protection over hundreds of thousands of years
