Rock laboratories provide important insights

Underground rock laboratories provide scientists with the opportunity to conduct experiments on a large, almost realistic scale. The research includes investigating the rock and its behaviour as well as testing technical procedures. The experiments provide important information for the construction of deep geological repositories.
