Abstract
The aim is to better integrate European education and training in nuclear engineering and safety to combat the decline in both student numbers and teaching establishments, thus providing the necessary competence and expertise for the continued safe use of nuclear energy and other uses of radiation in industry and medicine. The project focuses on a harmonised approach for education and training in nuclear engineering in Europe and its implementation, including the better integration of national resources and capabilities. The expected result is a operational network for training and life-long learning schemes as well as on academic education at the master, doctoral and post-doctoral level, underpinning:... sustainability of Europe's excellence in nuclear technology... harmonised approaches to safety and best practices, both operational and regulatory, at European level in Member States and Accession Countries... preservation of competence and expertise for the continued safe use of nuclear energy and other uses of radiation in industry and medicine... harmonised approach for training and education in nuclear engineering. In the network... we implement the roadmap for nuclear education in Europe as developed and demonstrated in the ongoing Euratom FP5 project ENEN... we warrant the end-user relevance of the training and education by involving corporate organisations e.g. Pan-European Nuclear Training Centres Association, by recruiting (part-time) professors out of industry and by providing (re)training of nuclear industry personnel... we teach advanced courses preferably at selected centres of excellence bridging leading edge research and new knowledge generation with teaching and education creating nuclei of excellence for doctoral schools in nuclear engineering and sciences... we facilitate transnational access to research infrastructure'.
