Final Activity Report - CETRAD (Co-ordination Action on Education and Training in Radiation Protection and Radioactive Waste Management)

Project ID: 508835


This is the final report of the CETRAD project funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). The aim of the project was to develop proposals for structuring and delivering both education and training in the management of the geological disposal of high-level and long-lived radioactive wastes and spent fuel in geological formations, and radiation protection. This report details the findings of a review of educational and training needs in radioactive waste management focusing in particular on geological disposal. Data for this review was gathered using a survey conducted across 17 Member States within the European Union (EU) and Associated Countries where a group of national correspondents were responsible for gathering data on a national level. The review has considered training and education needs of:

i) national radioactive waste management organizations;
ii) regulatory and government advisory organizations; and
iii) other nuclear industry organisations employing staff in this area, and provision of education and training by university and non-university organisations to address these needs.
