The ARGONA project intends to demonstrate how participation and transparency link to the political and legal systems and how new approaches can be implemented in nuclear waste management programmes. Theoretical development is done and new approaches are tested. Decision-makers and stakeholders at national and local levels will be involved in the project. ARGONA will develop guidelines for the application of novel approaches to participation and transparency.
