The research project ENTRIA is engaged in finding options for the storage and disposal of high-level (heat generating) radioactive waste. Decades of discussions throughout the society and furthermore the feedback on recent political events such as the Law on Location Finding have made it very clear that this complex may not be solely solved from pure technical or natural science viewpoints. That is why the research at ENTRIA combines technical and social aspects of the three most important radioactive waste management options:

The joint research project ENTRIA consists of twelve institutes at German universities and research facilities as well as one Suisse partner. ENTRIA is analyzing radioactive waste management subjects from the viewpoint of all involved academic disciplines such as natural sciences, engineering, arts, law and social science.

ENTRIA is a joint research project financed by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF, SUPPORT CODE 15S9082A).
