Project ID: 508849


This is the final report of the NEPTUNO project funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). The aim of the project was 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. This report gives an overview of NEPTUNO project, with emphasis on the main achievements and the conclusions of the Working Groups. The first working package realised a comprehensive and documented survey of courses and training packages currently offered in the enlarged European Union (EU). The conclusions and the recommendations formulated by the working groups are presented in the final sections of the report. The perspectives and remaining challenges for the future development of nuclear education and training in the EU, its harmonisation at the European level and the exchange of best practices among the different European actors involved, are elaborated in the final section. The vision of European Nuclear Education Network Association and its programme after the end of the NEPTUNO project is presented.
