Executive Board

  • Thomas Ernst Chief Executive Officer Deep geological repositories are best suited to ensuring the safe long-term management of radioactive waste.
  • Markus Fritschi Deputy CEO – Division Head Collaboration Sectoral Plan & Public Outreach Our duty to future generations is to implement this environmental protection task in Switzerland without delay and not to put it on the back-burner. The technical basis for achieving this already exists.
  • Maurus Alig Coordinator Major Project Sectoral Plan Stage 3 / General Licences The sites remaining from Stage 2 fulfil the strictest requirements for constructing a deep geological repository. The foundation has thus been laid for our qualified and motivated staff to bring the Sectoral Plan process to a successful conclusion in the third stage in a safety-oriented and transparent way.
  • Reto Beutler Division Head Finance, Controlling & Human Resources Realising safe deep geological disposal of radioactive waste is the responsibility of the current generation. However, sustainable solutions also have to be economically viable.
  • Patrick Senn Division Head Planning & Construction of Deep Geological Repositories Disposing safely of our radioactive waste is a challenging task that will extend over generations. Deep geological repositories can ensure long-term safety if they are constructed at the right location. We are working every day towards achieving this – professionally, responsibly and with a clear sense of purpose.
  • Tim Vietor Division Head Safety, Geology & Radioaktive Materials Our mission is to ensure the cross-generational protection of humans and the environment by constructing safe deep geological repositories. We are approaching this task with a strong sense of responsibility and the necessary respect.
  • Piet Zuidema Overall Project Manager Sectoral Plan Stage 2 The research and investigation programmes carried out by Nagra have resulted in a good level of knowledge. In Switzerland, we have host rocks of excellent quality for confining radioactive waste. Geological repositories can be realised with the required level of safety.
