    Enresa was created in 1984 as a public, non-profit organisation responsible for the management of radioactive waste, with the aim to perform an essential public service: collecting, treating, conditioning, storing and disposing of the radioactive waste produced throughout the Spanish State.

    Therefore, the task of Enresa is to protect people and the environment from radioactive waste. It is also included the decommissioning of nuclear and radioactive facilities, as well as the environmental restoration of uranium mines.

    In the SHARE project, ENRESA will be leading the WP2, that aims to collect the needs of the global D&D R&I value chain.

    The Institute for Energy Technology (IFE) is an independent research organization and is in one of the leaders in technology development and research within energy, health and industrial development. IFE is implementing Norway’s largest nuclear research programme and is also responsible for administering the OECD Halden Reactor Project (OECD-HRP), which is a close to 60-year-long international undertaking supported by more than 100 organisations in 20 OECD countries. Under the OECD-HRP and other programmes, IFE has for many years been conducting research and implemented pilot applications of digital technologies for supporting work in nuclear and other safety critical environments. IFE has been designated by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as an International Collaborating Centre in the field of digitalisation of knowledge management for nuclear decommissioning. In the SHARE project, IFE will be focusing on needs and opportunities for digital innovation of nuclear decommission.

    – Nuclear Safety & Security
    – Unit G.III.8 – Waste Management

    The Directorate General-Joint Research Centre is the European Commission’s science and knowledge service. Its mission is to support EU policies with independent evidence throughout the whole policy cycle. Its work has a direct impact on the lives of citizens by contributing with its research outcomes to a healthy and safe environment, secure energy supplies, sustainable mobility and consumer health and safety. The JRC hosts specialist laboratories and unique research facilities and is home to thousands of scientists working to support EU policy. The JRC has ten Directorates and is located across five EU Member States (Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain).

    The Directorate involved in this project is Directorate G – Nuclear Safety and Security within which the JRC’s nuclear work programme, funded by the EURATOM Research and Training Programme, is carried out. It contributes to the scientific foundation for the protection of the European citizen against risks associated with the handling and storage of highly radioactive material, and scientific and technical support for the conception, development, implementation and monitoring of community policies related to nuclear energy. Research and policy support activities of Directorate G contribute towards achieving effective safety and safeguards systems for the nuclear fuel cycle, to enhance nuclear security then contributing to achieving the goal of low carbon energy production.

    JRC is leading the WP1 – Infrastructure for SHARE implementation: methodologies and tools and is involved in the implementation of the others SHARE work packages.

    KIT with more than 9,000 employees, 26,000 students and an annual budget of about EUR 785 million is one of the biggest research and education institutions. Among others KIT is partner in the programme “Nuclear Waste Management, Safety and Radiation Research” (NUSAFE) of the German Helmholtz Association, covering safety aspects of NPP, the efficient decommissioning of nuclear facilities, the management and final disposal of nuclear waste and the use of advanced experimental and computational infrastructures.

    The KIT decommissioning department evaluates decommissioning projects and the development of innovative and automated technologies for the use in nuclear facilities. Techniques for the decontamination of concrete surfaces, the separation of steel and ferroconcrete for the reduction of radioactive secondary waste are elaborated. Further projects are dealing with the impact of technical, economic, social and political consequences of decommissioning, the build-up of knowledge database and the implementation of tools for datamining.

    The UK’s National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) offers a breadth of technical products and services covering the complete nuclear fuel cycle, from fuel manufacture and power generation to reprocessing, waste treatment and disposal. We operate from six sites in Cumbria, Lancashire, Cheshire, Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire, although most of our work is focused around our sites in the North West of England, and we are the second biggest industrial employer in West Cumbria.

    With over 10,000 man years of nuclear experience across the fuel cycle, coupled with world-leading nuclear R&D facilities, we deliver the experts and technologies that ensure the UK nuclear industry operates safely, efficiently and cost effectively.

    NNL plays a central role in the co-ordination of UK nuclear research and development and maintains close links with academia and industry. We support Government in safeguarding the UK’s nuclear skills and capabilities and provide advice on key strategic decisions.

    The scope of our work includes measurement and analysis; waste and spent fuel technology; fuels and radioisotopes; safety management; asset care; security and environmental services.

    Within the SHARE project, NNL will be bringing a wealth of expertise on nuclear decommissioning and leading WP3 which aims to map existing state of the art technologies and organisational best practice currently employed across the nuclear industry in line with the needs determined in WP2.
