Draft Final Activity Report - MSCFP (Integrating EURATOM FP5 and FP6 research into the European Master of Science in Radiation Biology)

Project ID: 44825


This is the final report of the MSCFP project funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). The MSCFP project was designed to provide a forum for Fifth Framework Programme (FP5) and FP6 Euratom research project leaders to discuss their research with the students participating in the European MSc course in radiation biology, which we have identified as the most important source of potential junior researchers. The report covers the actions undertaken in the project. The beginning covers the first year period of MSCFP. They organised a series of meetings and workshops to allow direct scientific exchanges between academic partners in five Euratom research and technological development (RTD) contracts (RISCRAD, NOTE, SOUL, GENRISK-T & RACE) and students participating in the European MSc course in radiation biology. In addition, a series of seven meetings were held to allow Euratom partners to directly advise the MSc teaching faculty on which new developments in radiation protection research, which has arisen from the Euratom projects, should be included in the upcoming syllabus of the MSc course. The final sections cover the negotiations which were conducted to permit MSc students direct access to the research laboratories of the Euratom-funded laboratories, to give them the opportunity to meet the staff members, and to learn at first hand the scientific methods and the scientific findings.
