Grimsel Test Site - The Next Decades

  • Stratis Vomvoris (a1), Wolfgang Kickmaier (a1) and Ian G. McKinley (a1)


The Grimsel Test Site, which has been in operation since 1984, is known in the radioactive waste management community for the scope and quality of the experiments and projects performed over the last two decades. This paper will overview Nagra's commitments and the current plans for future activities in association with Grimsel, which are being developed considering time scales of the order of a decade or more.
