ARGONA End Users Conference

How can recent research improve the governance of nuclear waste management in Europe?

Time March 17 -18, 2009
Venue Pingstkyrkan, S:t Persgatan 9, Uppsala
(Pingstkyrkan - Pentecostal Church - is one of the major conference venues in Uppsala)

The Uppsala conference is an opportunity for communication and dissemination of preliminary results from the ARGONA project and to give the project feedback on its preliminary results and recommendations. The intention is also to give a wider view of the state of knowledge about participation and transparency in radioactive waste management in Europe by the active participation of three other major on-going or recently ended projects - CARL, OBRA and CIP.

The conference provides a forum for municipalities, other end users and researchers to discuss the outcome of research in the field, and to reach their own respective positions about their needs for participation and transparency in the future. The focus is thus on practical implications of research.
