ENETRAP Projects

ENETRAP III - European Network on Education and Training in RAdiological Protection


This project started in June 2014 and ended in May 2018.

ENETRAP III added new and innovative topics to existing E&T approaches in RP. It further developed the European reference training scheme with additional specialized modules for Radiation Protection Experts working in medical, geological disposal and NPP. It implemented the ECVET principles and established targeted assistance from regulators that will play a crucial role in the endorsement of the proposed courses and learning objectives. View the training modules developed by ENETRAP.

ENETRAP III also introduced a train-the-trainer strategy. All organised pilot sessions were open to young and more experienced students and professionals. In this way, ENETRAP III aimed to contribute to increasing the attractiveness of nuclear careers and to lifelong learning activities.

A web-based platform containing all relevant information about E&T in RP facilitates an efficient knowledge transfer and capacity building in Europe and beyond.

ENETRAP III also proposed guidance for implementing E&T for Radiation Protection Experts and Officers, hereby providing extremely important assistance to all Member States who are expected to transpose the Euratom BSS requirements into their national legislations.

Moreover, ENETRAP III aimed to demonstrate the practical feasibility of earlier developed concepts for mutual recognition and thus provide leading examples in Europe demonstrating effective borderless mobility.

For all these activities ENETRAP III strongly connected with all stakeholders, i.e. end-users, E&T providers, legal authorities, and to other relevant international organisations, groups and networks dealing with E&T in radiation protection.
