18 November 2015 sees the launch of the European Union 'Energy - Transparency Centre of Knowledge' (E-TRACK) initiative. This is a massive programme of public participation in the implementation of energy policies, and the first project focuses on Radioactive Waste Management (RWM) following the legally binding requirements for transparency of the Council Directive 2011/70/EURATOM on spent fuel and radioactive waste.
Ele Carpenter will contribute to the workshop on 'Deconstructing acceptance – Siting radioactive waste repositories from societal and scientific perspectives' organized by the Environmental Policy Research Centre, FU Berlin, in the framework of the ENTRIA project (Disposal Options for Radioactive Residues: Interdisciplinary Analyses and Development of Evaluation Principles).
