ENETRAP II project


This project received funding from the EURATOM Research and Training programme 

3 years under grant agreement N° 232620.

The overall objective of this 7th Framework Programme project is to develop European high-quality “reference standards” and good practices for education and training in radiation protection (RP), specifically with respect to the radiation protection expert (RPE) and the radiation protection officer (RPO). These “standards” will reflect the needs of the RPE and the RPO in all sectors where ionising radiation is applied.

The introduction of a radiation protection training passport as a mean to facilitate efficient and transparent European mutual recognition is another ultimate deliverable of this project.

It is envisaged that the outcome of this project will be instrumental for the cooperation between regulators, training providers and customers (nuclear industry, research, non-nuclear industry, etc.) in reaching harmonization of the requirements for, and the education and training of RPEs and RPOs within Europe, and will stimulate building competence and career development in radiation protection to meet the demands of the future.
