    The ENETRAP project (EC contract number FI6O-516529) made a study of the current European E&T issues. This study included: - Set up and analysis of a vast questionnaire, answered by almost all European countries, inquiring on (i) numbers of RPEs different sectors dealing with ionizing radiation, (ii) identification of practices, (iii) national E&T needs and capabilities, (iv) regulatory requirements and (v) recognition - A study on the need and effectiveness of on-the-job training (OJT) - A study on the approach of e- and distance learning tools - A study of the EU and IAEA requirements and syllabi for Qualified Experts. In this way ENETRAP provided the fundamentals on which the European umbrella organisation EUTERP can build the organisation, follow-up and recognition of E&T programmes, which will contribute to an enhanced mobility of workers, teachers and students throughout the European countries. The intention is to use the information obtained to propose minimum requirements for - mutual recognition of RPEs and RPOs, and the various training and education activities available in the EU Member and Candidate States and - the content, structure and methods of these training and education activities.
