NEA work on this topic

Concern over the availability of qualified radiological protection experts in the coming decade continues to be an issue for regulatory and industrial organisations. How radiological protection experience and knowledge can be managed is the key issue that drives the CRPPH to contribute to the construction of a radiological protection career framework jointly with relevant international organisations or associations.

More on the educational and transgenerational aspects, the International Radiological Protection School (IRPS) helps to prepare tomorrow’s radiological protection leaders by providing a deep understanding of why and how the radiological protection system has developed, the way it is applied and what that means.
