Education & Training opportunities

The exchange of experience and expertise, the sharing of capabilities and resources and networking between stakeholders, is crucial for the development of an efficient education and training offer that is geared to providing the highly-skilled workforce that a dynamic and fast-evolving sector demands.

With that in mind, the European Nuclear Society (ENS) has established the Education and Training (E&T) Platform. It provides an overview of available university courses, as well as the training and education programmes offered by industry and other institutions. The E&T Platform places special emphasis on collaboration between stakeholders, on the sharing of available infrastructure and resources and on the promotion of existing networks.

The Platform is closely linked to ENS’ bi-annual conference on Education and Training, NESTet, and will continue to evolve thanks to the input it receives from the conference. Another significant contribution to the Platform is made by ENS’ members in 23 countries and by its 60-strong corporate membership.


The NUGENIA Association offers grants that are dedicated mainly to early career engineers and scientists but also to professionals who wish to visit an infrastructure located in a European country which is distinct to the one in which they work. The infrastructure must be relevant to their qualification or R&D work and recognised as valuable by NUGENIA end-users.

The ENEN+ project aims to substantially contribute to the revival of the interest of young generations in the careers in nuclear sector. In order to achieve this purpose, the ENEN + H2020 project has launched a mobility call.


The mobility grants are intended for those, who would like to improve their knowledge, skills and competitiveness for career opportunities in the following nuclear fields:

  • Nuclear engineering and safety
  • Waste management and geological disposal
  • Radiation protection
  • Medical applications

In particular, the following groups of learners are eligible to receive mobility grants:

  • BSc. students interested in pursuing a master education and/or a career in the nuclear fields.
  • MSc. students in nuclear interested in extracurricular experience and/or academic exchange such as EMSNE.
  • PhD. students and Post-docs in nuclear interested in academic and research exchange, access to research infrastructures and cooperation with EURATOM research projects.
  • Professionals, interested in changing their careers to nuclear and/or building up their life-long learning on nuclear topics.

All mobility actions must be transnational and completed before 31 December 2020 (the end of the ENEN+ project).
