IPPA Project

The IPPA Project (Implementing Public Participation Approaches in Radioactive Waste Disposal) is a project within the Seventh Euratom Research and Training Framework Programme (FP7) on Nuclear Energy of the European Commission. The project, which started in January 2011 and will last for three years, is coordinated by Karita Research.

The consortium consists of seventeen organizations from twelve countries. Together they represent academic research, other research institutions, consultant companies, nuclear waste management organizations, and NGOs. The participants have backgrounds and expertise in a broad spectrum of areas such as physics, geology, nuclear engineering, radioactive waste treatment, environmental science, environmental impact assessment, environmental policy, political science, sociology, economics and international affairs. The Participants are:

The core aim with the IPPA project is the establishment of safe spaces where stakeholders can join to increase their understanding of the issues involved in radioactive waste disposal and also of their respective views. With this purpose, the RISCOM Model will bee implemented for the clarification of arguments with respect to their scientific support and their value-laden basis.
