Abstract:

The development of nuclear power needs nuclear chemistry and radiochemistry (NRC) experts. However, the shortage of such experts is a worldwide problem in nowadays. This paper introduces the CINCH (Cooperation in Nuclear and Radiochemistry Education and Training in Europe) project which was carried out to overcome the shortage of NRC experts in Europe. The achievements of CINCH were a detail survey of NRC education in Europe, a plan to introduce the EuroMaster degree to guarantee the education quality and an interactive open database for NRC education and training (NucWik). These successful experiences are beneficial to our NRC education.

Key words: European radiochemistry, Education inspiration, Survey status
