End User Group

based on diverse needs and challenges. The End Users Group (EUG) consists of nuclear power plant operators and research reactor owners as radioactive waste producers (RWP) and waste management organisations (WMOs).

EUG members benefit from project involvement by having closer access to the project innovative tasks, having opportunities to provide insights about their needs and challenges, and providing feedback on draft plans for technology developments and implementation of project outcomes. A diverse and active EUG ensures high impact of the Project.

The EUG can participate to the annual Project meetings, work package specific meetings, and workshops upon invitation. The EUG membership is purely a volunteer basis, with no financial or technical reporting expectations. The current composition of the EUG includes 22 members from 14 countries, as shown in the Table below.

If your organisation wants to be part of the PREDIS End User Group, contact us. Additional members are welcome throughout the project duration. If your organization would like a lighter role of just following the project as an interested party (including regulators, research groups, universities, supply chain companies, civil society, etc.), then please register for the Stakeholder group to receive email announcements (for instance about PREDIS project public events and newsletters).
