Final Activity Report - ENETRAP (European Network on Education and Training in Radiological Protection)

Project ID: 516529
Funded under: FP6-EURATOM-NUCTECH

Abstract

This is the final report of the ENETRAP project funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). This project dealt with the development of an E&T structure based on an analysis of needs, qualification requirements, etc. of the different EU Member States. Studies have shown that a wide variety of national E&T approaches for the qualified expert, as required in the European basic safety standards, exists in the Member States, the new Member States, and the Candidate States. An important tool set up and used during this project was the ENETRAP questionnaire, which allowed studying the education and training needs for radiation protection experts, officers, and workers. More than 40 questions covered topics such as adequateness of RPEs, self-sustainability of national E&T programmes, regulation and recognition, implementation of on-the-job training, availability of distance learning and/or e-learning, etc. This study should result in a detailed overview of the current situation of E&T in radiological protection in Europe, enabling us to put forward recommendations for a harmonised approach of the education and training schemes and to promote the quality of E&T programmes, the mutual recognition of skills, and the mobility of workers and students.
