Abstract
Descripción: The Coordination Action consolidates and expands the achievements of the ENEN and the NEPTUNO projects attained by the European Nuclear Education Network Association in respectively the 5th and 6th framework programme. The ENEN-II project is aiming at developing ENEN Association in a sustainable way in the areas of nuclear engineering, radioprotection and radwaste management, including underground disposal. Nuclear education and training networks will be developed at the national level to provide a solid basis for networking at the European dimension. Advisory groups and discussion forums will be established to strengthen guidance, interaction and feedback from End Users and stakeholders regarding higher level training needs. In addition to EC funding, third-party funding will be attracted to support mobility of teachers and students at masters', doctoral and postdoctoral level. The approach used so far successfully for education will be developed and extended to training activities. It relies on the principles of a modular approach and common qualification criteria, a common mutual recognition system across the European Union, and the facilitation of teachers and student mobility through Public-Private Partnerships. The project activities will be mainly structured around the five committees of the ENEN Association in close collaboration with selected consortium partners. The Training and Academic Affairs Committee and the Advanced Courses and Research Committee develop and implement non-overlapping schemes covering one full academic year (60 ECTS) of courses in nuclear disciplines leading to Master degrees. The latter Committee also promotes interactions between research conducted at European universities and nuclear research centres, and end users such as utilities, power plants, regulatory bodies, industries, etc. It organises exchanges and meetings between doctoral and postdoctoral students in the framework of seminars, workshops and courses on topics at the edge of current scientific research. The Training and Industrial Projects Committee facilitates interactions between training organisations and professionals in nuclear industries to provide pertinent and harmonised training programmes for continual training on new topics as well as to refresh and update capabilities and qualifications. The Knowledge Management Committee operates the ENEN web site, advertises courses and events of interest, develops and disseminates E-learning tools, courses and training packages on a variety of media, maintains data banks and communication systems. The project also develops a "Think Tank" function with reviews on nuclear energy and applications in various fields, evaluating performance, achievements, expectations, potential, and costs including also public perception and social aspects. The quality of the ENEN products and the project deliverables, the reports, courses, training packages, certificates, and the reliability of the information is continuously monitored by the ENEN Quality Assurance Committee.
