Announcement - site selection procedure

31 August 2017: Invitation to start of site selection procedure on 5 September in Berlin

Invitation to start of site selection procedure:

Tuesday 5 September 2017, 2pm-5pm
Events Centre of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Science, Markgrafenstrasse 38, 10117 Berlin


With a “look back and ahead”, the Bundesgesellschaft für Endlagerung mbH (BGE) will introduce the start of the site selection procedure.

Federal Environment Minister Dr. Barbara Hendricks and members of the Bundestag’s parliamentary groups have enabled the restart of the final repository search.

The BGE is now taking the first step to find a location for the radioactive legacies of the nuclear age. During the event, we want to explore together where we have come from, what we have created and what will follow in the next few months.

The event is public. For organisational reasons, prior registration is required at veranstaltung(at)bge.de.
