Occupational, public and environmental radiation protection is a major challenge in the industrial applications of ionising radiation, both in the nuclear and non-nuclear domain, as well as in other areas such as the medical and research area. As is the case with all nuclear expertise, there is a trend of a decreasing number of experts in radiation protection due to various reasons. Therefore, maintaining a high level of competencies in this field is crucial.A sustainable Education and Training infrastructure for Radiation Protection is an essential component to combat the decline in expertise and to ensure the continuation of the high level of RP knowledge in the future. Such infrastructure has to be built in a way that both the initial training (“Education”) and the unceasing maintenance of the level of competencies (“Training”) are available. The development of a common European RP and safety culture and, based on that, the mutual recognition for RP courses and the acquired competencies of RP experts becomes a real need. The harmonisation of E&T is a good starting point. Moreover, harmonisation will favour the mobility of workers and students throughout the European countries.
