Graduate and Executive Nuclear Training and Lifelong Education

Graduate and Executive Nuclear Training and Lifelong Education

Objective

The GENTLE project is a pan-European effort in the field of education and training (E&T) on Nuclear Energy. It brings together leading European academic and research institutions with the goal to set up a life-long learning programme, strongly supported by stakeholders from industry. GENTLE focuses on two E&T domains: (a) the education of students by means of student research experiences in the nuclear laboratories, and intersemester courses on special topics that are generally not part of the academic curriculum, (b) a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on nuclear energy hosted on one of the leading e-learning platforms. These tools will strongly impact on the education and training quality in Europe as they broaden the scope of interest to industry and safety organisations, and give the student better opportunities to obtain hands-on experience in high level nuclear research. This will help the European industry to consolidate its leading position in the international market. In addition, to the inter-consortium collaboration, GENTLE will actively coordinate E&T efforts in the domain and will initiate a dialogue with the associated stakeholders from industry on nuclear E&T in Europe, to steer its own E&T programme but also to advice the European Commission and EU member states. GENTLE is thus a holistic approach to training and education on nuclear energy and is complementary to the ongoing efforts in Europe.
