Final Activity Report - EURAC (Securing European Radiological Protection and Radioecology Competence to meet the Future Needs of Stakeholders)

Project ID: 508839


This is the final report of the EURAC project funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). The primary aim of EURAC was to strengthen the scientific academic competence and analytical skills within radiological protection, radioecology and radiochemistry and to secure the future recruitment of appropriately skilled post-graduates to meet the needs of European stakeholders. These detail the status of relevant competence within Europe and the future education needs within radiological protection, radioecology and radiochemistry, as identified by key stakeholders. The first part of the report provides a database for identifying key institutions that possess the necessary competence, facilities and/or infrastructures to participate in coordinated, postgraduate, education systems. The second part of the report sets the standard for the scientific competence needed in future university-trained, post-graduate education (at Master and PhD levels). Part three describes the different models (tools) that can be used to achieve the required coordinated education system in Europe. The aim being to provide possible solutions that will produce candidates well suited for their future jobs - with an appropriate level of competence, as defined by international standards, within the identified areas of radiological science.
