Recent studies have shown that there is a wide variety of approaches to education and training of the Qualified Expert across the EU. As they stand, such differences are a barrier to the mutual recognition of Qualified Expert status and, in part, are contributing to a perceived shortage in expertise in radiation protection and safety. This presentation outlines the key aims and objectives of the ENETRAP project currently being undertaken under the 6th Framework Programme. The overall aim of ENETRAP is to determine mechanisms that in the longer term will a) facilitate better integration of education and training activities (with a view to mutual recognition across the EU) and b) to ensure the ongoing provision of the necessary competence and expertise at the level of the Qualified Expert. These goals are to be achieved via the establishment of a European Education & Training Network in radiation protection. It is hoped that, in time, this network will become self-sustaining and will help to maintain appropriate education and training programmes.
