Knowledge Management

Knowledge Management is enabled by three permanent WPs:

State of Knowledge

Activities under this WP consist of developing a systematic approach of establishing the state-of-knowledge in the field of RWM research. This shall be done on a stepwise basis: i) establishing of procedures to document the state of knowledge (SoK); ii) testing and improving these procedures on a few demonstration topics/sub-topics (of the Roadmap); iii) performing a review on existing tools/platforms and evaluating the added-value of establishing such a platform dedicated to provide access to SoK developed in EURAD.

 

Beneficiaries and Linked Third Parties involved : Andra, BGE, CIEMAT, HZDR, JRC and SSTC NRS.

Methodological guidance

Activities under this WP consist of developing a comprehensive suite of instructional guidance documents that can be used by Member-States with RWM programmes that are at an early stage of development with respect to their national RWM programme. Such WP shall pursue and complement the work initiated with the PLANDIS Guide.

Beneficiaries and Linked Third Parties involved: JRC, EIMV, PURAM, SURAO, SSTC NRS and SURO. 

Training/mobility

Activities under this WP consist of developing a diverse portfolio of tailored basic and specialised training courses under the umbrella of a “School of Radioactive Waste Management”, taking stock of and building upon already existing initiatives (i.e. IAEA and NEA) and creating new initiatives to bridge the identified gaps. The end-users are defined as professionals and potential new professionals at graduated and post-graduated level from EU and non-EU countries (via the IAEA and NEA programmes), and in particular the next generation of experts. This WP will also organise a mobility programme to provide access to dedicated infrastructures associated with the Mandated Actors/Linked Third Parties within EURAD. This work will be carried out in close interaction with European networks having a recognised experience in training/mobility in the field of RWM.

 

Beneficiaries and Linked Third Parties involved: Andra, CIEMAT, JRC, EIMV, CTU, SCK-CEN, SSTC NRS, SURO. 

The School of RWM acts as the executive body for all training and mobility actions that are organized within EURAD. The end-users of the School of RWM are defined as professionals and potential new professionals at graduated and post-graduated levels from EU and non-EU countries (via the IAEA and NEA programmes), and in particular the next generation of experts. All the work described here will be carried out in a close interaction with the European networks having a recognized experience in training/mobility in the field of RWM.

Introductory Course on EURAD and Radioactive Waste Management

A free-of-charge one day course “Introductory course on EURAD and Radioactive Waste Management” will take place on September 14th 2020. 

This Course is open to all with a priority given to EURAD partners. 

 

EURAD Mobility Programme

The EURAD Mobility Programme is intended to support individuals who would like to further develop their knowledge and skills in the field of Radioactive Waste Management including deep geological disposal.
The Programme is primarily aimed at PhD students, Postdocs and Early Career professionals/researchers (who subject to evaluation) are eligible to receive financial support through the EURAD Mobility Programme (detailed information on financial support can be found in the Mobility Manual). In This first track, applicants must be affiliated to participants in the EURAD programme

GAS/HITEC Training Course 

The first GAS/HITEC Joint training course has been organized from 22 to 24 January 2020 at the Liège University in Belgium within the framework of EURAD as a Doctoral School entitled “Multiphysical Couplings in Geomechanics, a focus on thermal effect and gas transfer impact on the behaviour of geomaterials
