Background of EUTERP

Logo EUTERP Foundation

The logo shows the map of Europe, and the 12 stars of the European Union. This symbolizes one of the aims of the EUTERP Foundation: a network initiated by the European Commission to foster the exchange of information on training and education in radiation protection in all European Member, Candidate and Associated States. The statue of Euterpe, one of the nine muses of Greek mythology, symbolizes harmony. Called the "Giver of Pleasure", Euterpe was the muse of music and of lyric poetry and depicted holding the aulos, a double-flute. Her name is from Greek eu (good, well) and "terpe" (to please). Music will really please when all musicians are playing in good harmony. Let us make the EUTERP Foundation lead to harmony in the qualifications and criteria for radiation protection experts throughout Europe.
