Nagra, the Swiss National Cooperative for the Disposal of Radioactive Waste, is responsible for planning and implementing the safe disposal of radioactive waste generated in Switzerland. Nagra’s experience in the field of radioactive waste management is also recognised abroad where it is applied in international programmes and areas outside the nuclear field.
The International Services and Projects (ISP) Division was established in 1997 as an integral part of Nagra and is responsible for projects with funding sources outside the Swiss national programme, as well as for the Grimsel Test Site. The activities cover a wide spectrum – strategic programme planning, specification of waste inventories, site selection, site characterisation and evaluation, repository design, safety case development, safety analyses, public communication, training and know-how build-up. The geographic range of Nagra’s activities extends from Europe to Asia and North America and is continuously expanding.
