In March 2020, Work Package (WP) 13 launched a ‘Survey on training initiatives’ in order to get an overview of the training needs as well as the existing training courses in the field of Radioactive Waste Management (RWM) within the EURAD community. The results of this survey were summarized in D13.1 – List of training needs from Research, Development and Demonstration and Strategic Studies Work Packages.
Additionally, WP13 performed a mapping of currently existing available course courses in the field of RWM. To do so, several sources have been searched, including previous EURATOM Framework Programmes (FP) and other initiatives developed by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Nuclear Energy Agency (OECD-NEA). Courses found have been identifed, analyzed and summarized in deliverable D13.2 – Mapping of available course materials.
In this report, the results of D13.1 and D13.2 are combined to form a priority list and schedule for upcoming training initiatives within EURAD. This list contains, but is not limited to, the following topics: Safety case production, Treatment of uncertainty, Waste acceptance criteria, and Spent Nuclear Fuel. Additionally, this list can also serve to prioritize mobility actions within the EURAD Mobility Programme. Furthermore, the Mobility Programme can be used by end-users to attend the new courses that will be organized based on the training priority list. These results will help fill training gaps in the Goal Breakdown Structure (GBS) of the EURAD Roadmap.
