The coordinators, Birgitta Kalinowski and Petra Christensen, are presenting MIND at the IGD-TP Exchange Forum 8 in Berlin December 3-4, 2018.
The Mind project would hereby like to invite you and your colleagues to the final MIND Project Annual Meeting which is scheduled to take place in Stockholm, Sweden on the 7th to 9th of May. The venue is the Vattenfall building in Solna.
Maria Victoria Fernandez Cantos and Josémaria Delgado Martin, master students of Mohamed Merroun form the University of Granada, presenting MIND results at the Spanish Society of Microbiology Conference held in Cadiz, Spain, 6-8 June.
These first 18 months have been very exciting due to the enthusiasm of all partners to start producing results and when compiling the quarterly reports of all WPs it becomes obvious that we have already accomplished a lot!
Between 24th and 28th of October 2016 Micans taught a course about how microorganisms can influence future final repositories for radioactive waste.Six participants from across Europe attended the course.

The HADES URL is the main research infrastructure for studies on geological disposal in Belgium. The Belgian URL is situated at the Mol nuclear area and is located in the Boom Clay formation at a depth of approximately 225 meters.
Low- and intermediate-level operating waste generated at the Olkiluoto power plant is finally disposed of in the VLJ-repository. It was commissioned in 1992 and consists of two rock silos, a hall connecting the two and auxiliary facilities constructed at a depth of 60-100 meters inside the bedrock. Low-level waste is deposited in the rock silo […]
The Mont Terri Underground Rock Laboratory (URL) is located in the Jura Mountains in Switzerland, 300 m below ground level. It provides access to the proposed host rock for deep geological disposal of radioactive waste in Switzerland, Opalinus Clay. There are numerous experiments ongoing at Mont Terri including several focused on the potential role of […]
The Äspö HRL (hard rock laboratory) outside Oskarshamn is a unique facility. SKB is conducting full-scale research and development here in preparation for the construction of a final repository for spent nuclear fuel. Microbial studies have been done for almost three decades at Äspö HRL by national as well as international groups.
