EURADSCIENCE is a new international network of research entities established to drive scientific excellence on radioactive waste management from cradle to grave, in support of implementation of national projects over the coming years and decades. EURADSCIENCE’s vision is ‘to maintain a holistic view of relevant scientific disciplines, to provide scientific excellence to advance the progress of national radioactive waste management programmes, and to assure the scientific credibility and by this contribute to societal acceptability of waste management concepts’.
Galson Sciences Ltd (GSL) is a founder member of EURADSCIENCE, and is represented on the Executive Committee by Dr Daniel Galson and Dr Jenny Kent. EURADSCIENCE’s first Position paper – jointly authored by the Executive Committee – can be found here: Eurad position paper
EURADSCIENCE has a central role in two major European Union projects:
- EURAD, which is running in the period 2019-2024 and is a first-of-a-kind European joint research and knowledge management programme focused on geological disposal of radioactive wastes. Further information: https://www.ejp-eurad.eu/
- PREDIS, which launches in September 2020 and focuses on best practices and predisposal management breakthroughs for radioactive waste. Further information: https://ats-fns.fi/images/files/2019/syp2019/presentations/TSW1_EHolt_Predis-Pre-disposalManagementOfRadioactiveWaste.pdf
GSL has a significant role in both of these projects.
