2015 November - 1st Meeting of the ENEN RU E&T Forum 

The International Conference on “Nuclear Safety and Personnel Training” hosted the first ENEN-RU II Forum Meeting in Obninsk, Russian Federation, on 24-25 November 2015. 

During the meeting the EU and the Russian sides decided to develop a joint EU-RU MSc certificate in the field of nuclear engineering. To achieve this goal, the experience of ENEN is planned to be used which was obtained from EMSNE (European Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering). A possibility was also created for four ENEN PhD students to participate in the First summer school on “Engineering and computer modeling”.

For the next year, four courses were planned to take place:

  • A two-week course for students and young specialists from countries with WWER technology
  • A joint ENEN and ROSATOM-CICE&T training course which topic is about nuclear safety culture
  • One course on “SAT, Systematic Approach to Training” for European and Russian specialists.
