Kick-off meeting ENETRAP III

On June 4, the kick-off meeting of the ENETRAP III 7FP project (ref. number 605159) took place in Brussels, Belgium.

ENETRAP III will build further on the results already achieved in the previous projects, and will mainly deal with providing guidelines to accompany the revised BSS with regard to RPE and RPO training, demonstrating the practical feasibility of earlier developed concepts for mutual recognition, developing additional training courses for RPEs working in NPPs, medical facilities and geological disposal, as well as a train-the-trainer event.

New publication

INSTN published a new textbook: "European Radiation Protection Course: Basics".

This book was developed under 7FP ENETRAP II and covers the radiation protection knowledge requirements specified in Module 1 of the European Radiation Protection Training Scheme. It contains the theoretical background of radiation protection principles and invites the learner to implement the acquired knowledge in daily work situations via exercises. An e-book complements the text book and provides continuously updated exercises and simulations of practical situations where the RPE must be able to provide advice on the radiation protection measures to be taken.
