In most countries within the European Union that relies to a significant extent on nuclear power, neither the undergraduate nor the PhD education is producing a sufficient number of engineers and doctors to fill the needs of the industry. Moreover, in many countries reactor physics and technology are being reduced or even removed from the academic curriculum. This has motivated EU-supported projects, aiming at finding means for raising the interest in nuclear technology among university students. As a result of this process, a new education organisation, European Nuclear Education Nework (ENEN), has recently been established.
