"Postgraduate Educational Course on Radiation Protection and the Safety of Radiation Sources", 10 October 2011 - 30 March 2012, Agia Paraskevi, Greece
Project RER/9/101 aims at building competence in Member States in radiation protection and in the safety of radiation sources. This is achieved mainly through specific training mechanisms developed to ensure that a suitable number of qualified experts and trainers is available for establishing, expanding and sustaining national radiation protection infrastructures. For instance, the “Postgraduate Educational Course in Radiation Protection and the Safety of Radiation Sources” aims to provide an initial basic professional training in radiation protection and safety for young professionals who will become trainers in later.
