The Nuclear Safety Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IBRAE RAN) was established with the aim of
advancing basic research in nuclear and radiation safety of nuclear power plants and other nuclear facilities. Over
the years, development of a modern radioactive waste management system was added as another goal to the list of
state tasks raised before the Institute. The paper overviews the historical background of IBRAE RAN activities in RW
management covering a period of over 20 years and presents the main areas of its research on this topic. Consolidation
of scientific expertise and research to address cross-cutting challenges associated with the establishment and further
development of a unified radioactive waste management system, as well as the development of strategic master plans
providing for the long-term safety of nuclear legacy facilities is viewed as a pillar of IBRAE RAN success.
