Radioactive Wastes

The Radioactive Wastes research programme is determined in accordance with the guidelines given by the Swiss Federal Workgroup for Nuclear Waste Disposal (Agneb). The programme covers independent research projects and studies on interdisciplinary and/or interoffice questions concerning disposal at state level that are not dealt with by other departments or for which no other body is responsible. Agneb can propose topics for studies, etc., point out gaps in knowledge and learn from the results. Responsibility for carrying out a research project is borne by the project management appointed by Agneb. Agneb takes care of quality assurance and communication.
