RWM Research Support Office launch

Join the launch of the Radioactive Waste Management Research Support Office (RWM RSO) in September. The RWM RSO is a newly formed body that brings together UK university capabilities in geological disposal science and technology.

The RWM RSO will:

  • Deliver world-leading research from the UK’s academic research community that will underpin the safety case for a geological disposal facility;
  • Support UK universities to access geodisposal research funding that will underpin our geological disposal programme;
  • Develop the next generation of geodisposal research expertise to support the national programme.


The 3-day programme includes:

  • Introduction to the RWM geodisposal research strategy and RSO activities
  • Introduction to the RSO funding portfolio and calls starting October 2020
  • Announcement of 2021 PhD project funding call
  • Case study presentations of RWM funded research
  • Plenary talk from Dr Allan Hedin, Manager of Safety Assessments at SKB, Sweden
  • Research proposal development workshop: Gas Generation, Migration and Reactivity in radioactive waste disposal

The research development workshop will be a sandpit event for researchers to help develop the funding call for this topic area.

The full programme is available here: https://www.research-support-office-gdf.ac.uk/connect/events/


The registration deadline is Friday 11th September. Tickets are free and available on Eventbrite.
