    Abstract

    Both EURAD and PREDIS are addressing research, strategic studies and knowledge management (KM) in the field of radioactive waste management (RWM). PREDIS is focusing on radioactive waste predisposal, while EURAD on overall aspects of RWM with s special focus on geological disposal of radioactive waste. Both are partially financially supported by the European Commission. Since inception, the KM activites are essential to ensure efficient knowledge transfer among the community. The projects contribute training amd mobility aspects, also including the ‘School of Radioactive Waste Management’, while using available research infrastructures and providing a platform for knowledge exchange. Besides training courses, both projects regularly organize topical webinars with worldwide participant and facilitate exchange of students and experts between institutes. A number of initiatives are taken to give visibility to students in the R&D programmes, thus supporting their networking and possibilities for mentoring.
