Nuclear European Platform of Training and University Organisations (NEPTUNO), Final Report

Project ID: 508849
Funded under: FP6-EURATOM-NUCTECH

Abstract

Under the sixth European Framework Programme, the project Nuclear European Platform of Training and University Organisations (NEPTUNO) proceeds with the implementation of the results of FP5 European Nuclear Engineering Network project (2002-2003) in the field of academic education and extends its harmonisation and coordination activities into the fields of PhD research, professional training and continuous training. Thirty five partners, involving universities, training organisations and research institutions, participated to the project from January 2004 till December 2005.
NEPTUNO integrates European education and training in nuclear engineering, nuclear safety and other nuclear fields with the major objective to secure qualified curricula in the nuclear disciplines at European universities with sufficient harmonisation to ensure mutual recognition according to the Bologna declaration, and to harmonise professional training and accreditation schemes.
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.
The second Working Package established electronic communication systems and internet access to databases of relevance to education and training activities, elaborated on principles and applications of distance and e-learning for nuclear disciplines, and provides an overview of contacts and coordination activities of the European Nuclear Education Network with education and training networks outside Europe.
