On 18-21 March 2011, the 5th Project meeting of FP7 PETRUS II project, the 2nd Project meeting of FP7 ENEN III project, and the 1st ECVET Workshop took place in Cordoba, Spain.
The Petrus II project has the objective to enable present and future professionals on radioactive waste management in Europe, whatever their initial disciplinary background, to follow a training programme on geological disposal which would be widely recognized across Europe. It was lanunched in January 2009 and the 5th Project meeting was held on 18-19 January 2011. The current status of the project was reviewed and the next steps were agreed. The ENEN Association is taking care of its official website and database, as well as coordinating the future project of cooperation with China.
The ENEN III project covers the structuring, organisation, coordination and implementation of training schemes in the field of nuclear engineering, in cooperation with local, national and international training organisations, to provide training to professionals active in nuclear organisations or their contractors and subcontractors. The following types of profiles are treated under the project:
Type A) Basic training in selected nuclear topics of non nuclear engineers and personnel of nuclear facilities contractors and subcontractors;
Type B) Technical training for the design challenges of GEN III plants;
Type C) Technical training for the construction challenges of GEN III plants;
Type D) Technical training for the design of GEN IV plants.
The ENEN III project stanted in 1 May 2009 and its 2nd Project meeting was held on 19-20 January 2011. The revised schedule was agreed and the next meeting will be held in summer 2011.
On 21 January, not only PETRUS II and ENEN III, but all other FP7 EFTS projects (ENETRAP II, CINCH and TRASNUSAFE) got together and discuss how to apply the European Credit Sytem for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) to the nuclear and radiation field. This is the first step for the challenges towards mutual recognition of training scheme in the nuclear and radiation field.
