EURATOM Disposal Programme Dissemination Workshop (EURADISS 2012)

Agenda & presentations

Please select an item in the left menu



The objectives of the workshop were to:

  1. Present, discuss, document and disseminate the scientific-technical advances from projects operating under the EURATOM disposal programme, and
  2. Discuss and make suggestions concerning this dissemination, also in view of forthcoming changes in the programme and its boundary conditions.


The workshop was organized on behalf of the IGD-TP. It was the first of a series events with the aim of disseminating the outcome of the scientific-technical activities within the EURATOM disposal programme. It reflects and is intended to be one important element in response to requirements for systematic dissemination of results in recent call for proposals within the ongoing FP7 (Call FP7-Fission-2012). In the forthcoming framework programme and Horizon 2020, IGD-TP funded activities and projects will be included.


In 2014 and in 2015 the IGD-TP will organize the follow-up dissemination events. In 2013, the entire EURATOM disposal programme is disseminated and communicated within the EURADWASTE 2013 conference.

The outcome of the workshop is proceedings in the form of a JRC report. The proceedings contains:

  • Background and overview information on the programme and the proceedings
  • Overview papers for the scientific-technical status of each of the on-going projects (approx 10 pages per paper)
  • Additional papers, as desired
  • Outcome of the panel discussion
The proceedings can be download from the Outcome EURADISS section.
Agenda & presentations

Below is the agenda with links to the presentations.

The agenda is structured along three sessions, namely

  • Source Term, Migration and Performance Assessment
  • Engineered Barrier Systems
  • Repository Technology,

and a Panel with discussion and recommendations concerning future Dissemination.
