Coordinated Research Project (CRP) on “Sustainable Education in Nuclear Science and Technology”

A Coordinated Research Project (CRP) on “Sustainable Education in Nuclear Science and Technology” has been initiated IN 2015 to help strengthening nuclear.

With the Objective of providing MSs organizations involved in nuclear E&T with relevant and substantiated information in support of nuclear education, the CRP has aims at enhancing awareness on current effective practices and trends, and providing further means to improve the quality and effectiveness of their services in nuclear E&T.

The work is articulated under seven themes.

Specific research objectives:

  1. To understand the impact of adopting modern information and computer technologies in nuclear education 
  2. To formulate main principles for cooperation and collaboration approaches and formats between industry, university and government, and among countries and regions (e.g. networking and resource sharing mechanisms) 
  3. To collect outreach best practices applied by academia to address schools and society 
  4. To understand and analyse demographic situation in nuclear education, including supply and demand issues 
  5. To develop a set of benchmarking approaches for nuclear education 
  6. To collect experience and methods of addressing challenges in “nuclearization” of non-nuclear engineers and scientists 
  7. To map nuclear competences in nuclear education

41 Proposals were received from different MS institutions and 6 Agreements and 8 Research Contracts were signed.

Research is ongoing in the respective signatory institutions.
