    n the FP7 ENETRAP III (nr. 605159 Fission-2012-5.1.1), thirteen European institutions are working over seven working packages with a common objective: to enhance the education and training in radiation protection at European and national level, taking into account the needs in different sectors such as nuclear industry, healthcare, research centres or governmental institutions. This presentation focuses on the achievements of Work Package 5. WP5 has designed a Capacity Building (CB) tool that encompasses a big amount of information around 3 target audiences, namely the professionals in radiation protection, the people in training and the RP community. The CB tool serves as a unique source of information on education and training in radiation protection, such as training references, professional workshops and an Education and Training (E&T) database. Next to specific information about E&T events, also general information about European projects and networks is available, as well as relevant legislation and the related qualification framework. With the development of this CB tool, supported by the EUTERP foundation, WP5 aims to contribute in transferring knowledge and developing skills and competences at individual and collective level in order to protect workers, the public and the environment from the potential risks of ionizing radiation today and in the future. Collaboration with the IAEA was set up and the actions taken consolidates with the relevant actions of the NKM Group of IAEA. This allows information about European radiation protection E&T initiatives to become known and consulted at global level.
