Task 7.4: Coordination and collaboration on E&T policy and strategy

(Lead: Michèle Coeck, SCK•CEN, Belgium)

Subtask 7.4.1: Coordination and collaboration (SCK•CEN).
This task will ensure the inclusion of the interests and requirements of E&T Working Groups of all radiation protection research platforms involved in the EJP (MELODI, ALLIANCE, NERIS and EURADOS, and medical radiation groups), in the planning and execution of the other tasks in this work package. In addition, there will be an active Programme of dialogue with other interest groups and stakeholders in order to take account of common policies, resources, and funding streams. Links will be established with:

  • Relevant European regulatory groups in charge of implementing the requirements of the EURATOM Basic Safety Standards (BSS), such as HERCA.
  • Projects under NFRP 10 (ANNETTE) and to E&T networks and projects, such as EUTERP, ENETRAP, EUTEMPERX, as well as training activities carried out under other EURATOM platforms, such as SNETP and IGDTP, or networks linked to these platforms. In particular, information exchange with NFRP10 project ANNETTE (if approved) will be established. ANNETTE intends to establish an advanced network on nuclear education, training and transfer of expertise.
  • The European Human Resources Observatory for the Nuclear Energy Sector (EHRO-N) where the Set Plan Roadmap on Education and Training has been developed aiming at investing more effectively into education and training, research and innovation moving to higher employment rates and low-carbon economy.
  • International Organisations, such as IAEA, WHO, ILO, ICRP, CRPPH/NEA/OECD, IRPA, EC DG ENER etc.

Subtask 7.4.2: Vocational training for experts foreseen in the new Euratom BSS directive

(Lead by Didier Louvat, ENSTTI, EU)

To be consistent with evolving safety standards and the Directive 2013/59/Euratom (Basic Safety Standards) in particular as well as the EU policy and strategy in E&T, training and retraining of staff concerned with radiation protection in organizations using or controlling the use of ionizing radiation needs to be set in place according to up to date standards and knowledge in the field.  In this subtask the training courses developed within CONCERT will be investigated and pooled into consistent professional learning pathways to be transferred to the training plans of radiation protection organizations. If gaps are identified by CONCERT, the development of new pilot training based on up to date standards, knowledge and knowhow will be initiated.
