The main objectives are to:

  • Present IGD‐TP on‐going activities, collaborations and main achievements  with a focus on the handling of uncertainties in the Safety case , microbiological studies and new waste form developments in collaboration with SNETP,
  • Discuss , after four years of implementations, if SRA’s priorities  are adequately covered by the joint activities and associated projects
  • Explore new ideas that could complement our SRA priorities and lead to new Research, Development and Demonstration Topics for the next five years

To fulfil these objectives, the EF5 will last three days. Besides plenary sessions comprising keynotes given by officials and experts, four parallel working group sessions will be held to discuss priorities and new technical initiatives:

  1. WG1 - Safety Case: Handling of uncertainties
  2. WG2 - Microbiological Studies
  3. WG3 - Information Exchange Platform with SNETP
  4. WG4 - Priorities and lessons learned after 4 years of implementation of SRA

In addition a special session will be organized by the Competence Maintenance, Education and Training (CMET) group with the aim of having the platform's views on the feasibility of a voluntary accreditation scheme and its prerequisites within the geological disposal community.

A visit of the Äspö laboratory will be organised on October 30th (end of visit around 14:00) (Limited number of participants).

Finally, the EF5 will give participants the opportunity to present their work in a poster session.
