Abstract: In most countries within the European Union that rely to a significant extent on nuclear power, neither undergraduate nor PhD education is producing a sufficient number of engineers and doctors to fill the needs of the industry. As a result of an EU-supported project, a new education organisation, European Nuclear Education Network (ENEN), has recently been established, with the aim to establish a European master|s degree of nuclear engineering. Recently, a new EU project, Nuclear European Platform of Training and University Organisations (NEPTUNO), has been launched, aiming at the practical implementation of ENEN and harmonisation of training activities.

Keywords: nuclear education; European Nuclear Education Network; ENEN; NEPTUNO; Nuclear European Platform of Training and University Organisations; training; harmonisation; European masters degree; nuclear engineering; nuclear power; nuclear energy; nuclear science; nuclear technology; nuclear knowledge; knowledge management.
