Finnish Research Programme on Nuclear Waste Management (KYT2022) 2019-2022

The Finnish research programme on nuclear waste management is based on the Nuclear Energy Act (990/1987) according to which the aim of research is "ensuring that the authorities have such sufficient and comprehensive nuclear engineering expertise and other facilities at their disposal that are needed for comparisons of the various ways and methods of carrying out nuclear waste management”.

The research emphasis on the research programme is on nationally central research topics.

The long-term aim of KYT2022 is, for its part, to maintain and advance national knowhow and infrastructure in nuclear waste management and to promote collaboration between authorities, nuclear industry, and scientists.


International evaluation report of VYR-funded research programmes is now available and offers recommendations for future work in the research programmes.
