Work Areas

We apply integrated analysis and methods to a broad spectrum of areas ranging from geological disposal to radioactive waste management, nuclear decommissioning, environmental remediation, resource management, energy systems and large infrastructures.

GEOLOGICAL DISPOSAL OF RADIOACTIVE WASTE & CARBON DIOXIDE

  • Socio-technical multi-criteria evaluation of sites in support of site selection process
  • Multi-scale performance assessment in different geological settings for site characterization
  • Global uncertainty/sensitivity analysis for model integration and performance assessment optimization during repository conception/design/licensing
  • Qualitative uncertainty management and sensitivity auditing in support of safety cases for repository licensing and for performance monitoring during repository construction/ operation

RADIOACTIVE WASTE MANAGEMENT

  • Socio-technical multi-criteria evaluation of storage, transport, and disposal strategies
  • Integrated and sustainability analysis of the back-end of nuclear fuel cycles
  • Social impact and conflict analysis of waste management strategies
  • Coalition formation process for conflict resolution over management strategy choices
NUCLEAR DECOMMISSIONING & ENVIRONMENTAL REMEDIATION
  • Socio-technical multi-criteria evaluation of decommissioning and remediation strategies
  • Social impact and conflict analysis of environmental cleanup strategies
  • Coalition formation process support for conflict resolution over decommissioning/remediation strategy choices

ENERGY SYSTEMS

  • Socio-technical multi-criteria evaluation for selection of new energy technologies
  • Environmental and social impact analysis in support of feasibility studies
  • Multi-scale integrated analysis of energy demand and supply patterns in support of feasibility study and audit of energy policies
  • Coalition formation process support for conflict resolution over energy technology choices
LARGE INFRASTRUCTURES
  • Socio-technical multi-criteria evaluation for selection of large infrastructure projects
  • Global uncertainty/sensitivity analysis for model integration and optimization during conception/design/licensing of large infrastructure projects
  • Environmental and social impact analysis in support of feasibility studies
  • Coalition formation process support for conflict resolution for new infrastructure choices
NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT
  • Integrated and sustainability analysis of resource management strategies
  • Multi-scale integrated analysis of water-energy-food-land nexus in support of feasibility study and audit of policies
  • Coalition formation process support for conflict resolution over management strategy choices
