The radiologic characterization is a very important step in dealing with materials and waste streams generated during operational and decommissioning phases of nuclear installations. Its goal is to determine the waste package radiologic content differenting between materials that can be released from regulatory con- trol and those that require further treatment and conditioning to become a stable waste form suitable for future storage and final disposal, according to its classifica- tion. Characterization is also needed in the pre-disposal stages of radioactive waste management to demonstrate compliance with the waste acceptance criteria of the storage facilities. This work presents the strategies developed and implemented by the MICADO EU project for an in-depth and accurate waste characterization and investigation of the different radioactive waste packages considered. It presents its goals, the methods developed and the technologies used contributing to the improve- ment of the safety. Special emphasis will also be given to complementary approaches highlighting the usability of the technologies and the digitalization and accessibility of the data.
