Safety is a category, which is assessed and improved with help of risk assessment, and is becoming more and more important parameter for decision making. The well developed models, which represent positive and negative aspect of parameters, which contribute to the risk, are the prerequisite for risk informed decision making Risk modelling and analyses within this project are improved in such sense that they enable definition of acceptance criteria for events connected with risk. The improvements include: development of dynamic probabilistic safety assessments considering additional parameters of risk including time, development of methods for definition of risk criteria and integration of geological parameters with probabilistic safety assessment. Results of the project represent an important contribution to the development of science and they serve as a standpoint for new scientific findings about integration of fault tree with simulated annealing as an optimisation method, about formulation of a dynamic fault tree with included time dependencies, about better modeling of safety, which includes improved probabilistic models with additional new parameters, about integration of geological parameters with probabilistic safety models, about definition of quantitative risk criteria, which supports decision making and about contribution to increase the safety culture worldwide. The results of this project contribute to safe and reliable supply of electric power, to the protection of the environment and its inhabitants from events connected with risk, to the introduction of probabilistic safety assessment into the decision making and to easier identification of the location of the radioactive waste repository.
