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.
