The European nuclear decommissioning training programme
The European Learning Initiatives for Nuclear Decommissioning and Environmental Remediation (ELINDER) is a training programme in nuclear decommissioning.
ICI Education Cooperation in Higher Education and Training Programme
ELINDER is organised in a set of complementary training courses, providing a common qualification.
The ELINDER courses are open to:
Nuclear decommissioning projects encompass all technical and management actions associated with ceasing operation of a nuclear installation and its subsequent dismantling to remove it from regulatory control, including the environmental remediation of the site.
Nuclear decommissioning is an activity that is expected to expand in the European Union: the industry needs highly motivated, qualified and experienced personnel in the near future.
ELINDER is coordinated by the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC) in collaboration with several partners including European universities and institutes specialised in the nuclear sector.
The courses, including visits and practical studies, are provided by each partner in different European countries. Additionally, the IAEA also supports the ELINDER project through its expert networks, training tools and its technical cooperation programme since 2017.
