Abstract

A recent survey has revealed that the provision of taught postgraduate training programmes at Master of Science level, specifically designed to meet stakeholders’ needs in the cognate fields of Radiation Protection, Applied Radiochemistry and Radioecology is, with several notable exceptions, insufficient in most Member States of the EU. Presently, it would appear that fewer than half the Member States offer dedicated training in Radiation Protection at Master’s level, while only six so offer in Radiochemistry, and at best three in Radioecology. However, more positively, the survey findings suggest considerable support for co-ordinated EU-wide Masters’ training programmes in Radiation Protection and allied fields, and a willingness to participate in and/or host such programmes.
