TRAINING & TUTORING (T&T) INITIATIVE AND PROGRAMME
European Instrument for International Nuclear Safety Cooperation (INSC)
The EU supports the promotion of the effective nuclear safety and radiation protection culture, the safe management of spent nuclear fuels and radioactive waste, the establishment of efficient and effective safeguards for nuclear materials, and the implementation of the highest related standards in non-EU countries. These objectives are achieved through the Training and Tutoring Programme.
The T&T Programme involves transferring knowledge, EU expertise and best practices for non-EU countries in need of technical assistance and provides training and education for staff of National Nuclear Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) and Technical Support Organisations (TSOs) having responsibilities in relation to nuclear safety.
Training and tutoring for experts of the Nuclear Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) and their Technical Support Organisations (TSOs) will develop or strengthen their regulatory and technical capabilities.
Goal of the Project
Provision of training and tutoring aiming at transferring knowledge, experience and good practices for the employees, experts of the Beneficiary Countries’ NRA(s) and TSO(s) to strengthen their capabilities related to the different areas of regulatory responsibilities and functions necessary for the effective nuclear safety regulation.
Outcomes, Benefits from the Project
- Strengthened capabilities of and existing adequate levels of competencies in NRAs and TSOs of Beneficiary Countries in terms of radiation protection and nuclear safety.
- Progress towards competence, and reasonable independence and self-sufficiency of NRAs and TSOs of Beneficiary Countries with regard to their tasks and responsibilities in terms of management and technical means.
- Implemented/adapted state-of-the-art European nuclear safety regulatory experience and best practices in Beneficiary Countries.
- Enhanced global cooperation on nuclear safety regulation.
