Education & Training

International actors

  1. ENEN- European Nuclear Education Network

    The main objective of the ENEN Association is the preservation and the further development of expertise in the nuclear fields by higher education and training. This objective should be realized through the co-operation between universities, research organisations, regulatory bodies, the industry and any other organisations involved in the application of nuclear science and ionising radiation.

ENEN master programme

  1. Cooperation for Higher Education on Radiological and Nuclear Engineering – CHERNE

    Workshops on Research in Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Protection

  2. NUCLEONICA is a new nuclear science web portal from the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre. The portal provides a customisable, integrated environment and collaboration platform for the nuclear sciences using the latest internet “Web 2.0” dynamic technology. NUCLEONICA is aimed at professionals, academics and students working with radionuclides in fields as diverse as the life sciences (e.g. biology, medicine, and agriculture), the earth sciences (geology, meteorology, environmental science) and the more traditional disciplines such as nuclear power, health physics and radiation protection, nuclear and radiochemistry, and astrophysics.

  3. CAPTURE – Knowledge Consolidation in the Nuclear Energy Sector. Programme of Joint Research Centre of the European Commission

    JRC has developed a method for consolidation of nuclear knowledge. The method relays on the mobilisation of all identified leading experts in the EU in re-evaluating old knowledge and consolidating what is necessary to create training materials for the new generations.

    The web site provides the information about the courses in Europe in nuclear issue.

  4. SARnet - A network of excellence federating European research on severe accidents in nuclear power plants

    Courses in nuclear field

  5. ENELA – European Nuclear Energy Leadership

    The purpose of the Academy is to train young graduates and high potential employees with different backgrounds to become leaders or to prepare them to take broader responsibilities in European nuclear energy corporations and institutions. The Academy will offer both a comprehensive Nuclear Energy Management Program and a Leadership Cycle based on a theoretical and practical approach focusing on specific European requirements and specifications 
    (Economics, politics, technology, legislation, safety standards, certifications)

  6. ENSTTI – The European Nuclear Safety Training and Tutoring Institute

    In an unprecedented joint initiative, four European Technical Safety Organisations - TSOs (IRSN in France, GRS in Germany, UJV in the Czech Republic and LEI in Lithuania) have created ENSTTI, the European Nuclear Safety Training and Tutoring Institute. The Institute will offer short applied training sessions and longer tutoring periods for university graduates and for those with some professional experience in the nuclear sector. Its focus will be on transmitting European research and assessment know-how in the fields of nuclear safety and radiation protection.

  7. EMMI The European Master in Molecular Imaging

    EMMI is an international program entirely dedicated to in vivo molecular imaging. Supported by the European Commission under the SOCRATES programme, this two-year interdisciplinary curriculum is brought together by prominent European molecular imaging research groups. Courses are held at a group of European partner Institutions: the INSTN (France), the Universities of Paris Sud 11 (France), Antwerp (Belgium), Crete (Greece) and Turin (Italy)

  8. European Synchroton Radiation Facility – Grenoble (ESRF)

    The ESRF synchrotron is an ambitious project that represents a very real technological, scientific and human challenge. In 1988, twelve European countries joined forces to create the synchrotron in Grenoble. Since then, seven more countries have joined the group. Together they create the indispensable synergy needed to carry out advanced scientific research.

  9. International School of Nuclear Law

    The International School of Nuclear Law (ISNL) was established in 2001 by the NEA and the University of Montpellier 1 and benefits from the support of the International Atomic Energy Agency. Its objective is to provide a high quality, intensive course of education in international nuclear law to law students at doctoral or masters level and to young professionals in the nuclear sector who wish to develop their knowledge.

    Participants study all essential aspects of nuclear law: radiological protection, nuclear safety, radioactive waste management, transport of nuclear materials, physical protection, non-proliferation, regulation of trade, environmental protection and nuclear third party liability and insurance.

  10. EUTERP Foundation

    The Foundation is an independent legal entity set up to provide a centralized European source of information on radiation protection education and training matters.


    EURADOS e. V. is a non-profit association for promoting research and development and European cooperation in the field of the dosimetry of ionizing radiation.

  12. NuSaSET

    European Commission Joint Research Centre is hosting the NuSaSET portal which, is a website dedicated to promote knowledge transfer in the field of Nuclear safeguards and non-proliferation. The website is a collaboration between Esarda, IAEA and INMM. All three partners contribute to it by providing information on Courses, job opportunities and Student Chapters. Furthermore, the portal provides a unique Social network for students and professionals to connect directly without the usual social barriers.
