How and where does Nagra carry out research on the disposal of radioactive waste? We would be pleased to show you.
Guided tours of the Mont Terri Rock Laboratory
As the primary research partner, we will gladly guide you through the Mont Terri Rock Laboratory, which is operated by swisstopo, the Swiss Federal Office of Topography. Here, research is being conducted directly in the Opalinus Clay. This is the rock that will eventually host the deep geological repository.
What's new at Nagra?
What does Switzerland think about the deep geological repository?
Switzerland is confident that it can realise the project of the century of deep geological disposal. A recent, representative survey shows that acceptance is high across the whole of Switzerland and in the affected region.
Tours of the Grimsel Test Site
Research at the Grimsel Test Site strengthens Switzerland’s ability to construct a safe deep geological repository. This underground laboratory provides ideal boundary conditions for a variety of experiments. These can even be carried out on a 1:1 scale. Join us inside the mountain, and we will show you what exactly we are researching at the Grimsel Test Site.
A day open to the public will be held on Saturday 22 June 2024. Further information will follow at a later date.

Offers for schools
Just like with climate change, scientific data alone are not sufficient to solve the problem of the disposal of radioactive waste. But who wants to have radioactive waste in their own backyard? This is an explosive question . We would be pleased to bring our workshop into your classroom and are available for discussion of this issue.
