16 years ago, the Czech and Slovak subjects involved in the geological disposal development programmes came to an arrangement of annual bi-lateral seminars on radioactive waste and spent fuel management, particularly its disposal in repositories. Since then, the seminar has spread wider to “Regional Central-European”, with participation of many renowned experts also from other countries. This year, the honour to hold the 16th Regional seminar has fallen to DECOM’s share.

The main objective of seminar is to provide a common platform for experts and decision makers to discuss policies and strategies for the safe management of RAW, examine possible approaches for disposal of RAW, share experiences and explore future directions. In spite of the differences between national concepts and status of particular programmes, many common problems can be identified. Sharing experiences and identification of commonalities should be a basis for closer co-operation of involved subjects within the region.

Seminar Location

The seminar will take place in the Hotel Senec****. It is a famous touristic destination located in western Slovakia that offers beautiful lakes, sport facilities and a number of attractions nearby. The town of Senec is easily reachable via highway, gateway airports are Bratislava (25 km) and Vienna (100 km).

Scope of Sessions

  • New approaches in RAW/SNF management,

  • Public involvement aspects of RAW management.
