NUMO Open Forum Discussion : Science and Technical Basis for Implementation of Geological Disposal

NUMO Open Forum Discussion was held on 1st June 2004. This open forum discussion was scheduled to follow the publication of two technical reports which support NUMO's call for volunteers to host a geological repository for HLW. In addition to technical presentations which summarized the general NUMO repository implementation programme and the contents of the “Siting Factors” and “Repository Concepts” reports, an invited talk and a panel discussion considered the key role of confidence building in geological disposal programmes.
