Establishment of a Regional Center of Competence for VVER Technology and Nuclear Applications

Objective

The essence of the project is to provide a special purpose structure for training and qualification of personnel for serving VVER technology as one of nuclear power options used in EU. Such approach should allow unifying existing VVER related training schemes according to IAEA standards and commonly accepted criteria recognized in EU. The structure is based on three general pillars: 1) Training schemes for VVER nuclear professionals; for non-nuclear specialists and subcontractors, involved in nuclear sector; and for students; 2) VVER related knowledge management system, which will accumulate information regarding design data, operational experience, training materials, etc.; and 3) Specialized regional training center for supporting VVER customers with theoretical and practical training sessions, training materials and general and special assignment training tools and facilities. The wider objective of the project is to implement the Council Conclusions of 1 - 2 December 2008 related to skills in the nuclear field: new skills and competences are needed in the context of the Nuclear Renaissance and to fulfill obligations under Article 7 of the COUNCIL DIRECTIVE (EURATOM) establishing a Community; framework for the nuclear safety of nuclear installations. The specific objectives of the project are: - enhancing safety and performance of nuclear installations with VVER technology through specialized initial and continuous training of personnel involved; - keeping the adequate level of safety culture; - contributing to the development of Knowledge Management System for VVER technology; - preserving and further developing nuclear competencies, skills and knowledge related to VVER technology, as a technology used in the EU.
