European Joint Programme on Radioactive Waste Management

    Project: EU project

    Project Details


    The European Joint Programme on Radioactive Waste Management (EURAD) is a project that will help the EU member states implement Directive 2011/70/Euratom (Waste Directive) by working with their national programmes. It will also coordinate action on joint targets among all related organisations involved at European level, whether in research or technical support. Building on the EC JOPRAD project, the EURAD project will help member states obtain the know-how required to implement safe and long-term management of radioactive waste. EURAD will also provide management knowledge to operate disposal facilities, and help transfer that knowledge between countries and organisations.
