PETRUS II 4th Project meeting in Rauma, Finland, 21-23 June 2010
Released on Thursday 24 June 2010
The 4th Project meeting of the PETRUS II (FP7) project took place in Rauma, Finland, 21-23 June 2010. This meeting was hosted by POSIVA, one of the project partners.
The PETRUS II project is one of the projects on European Fission Training Schemes (EFTS) under the European Commission 7th Framework Programme (FP7), which was launched in January 2009. The aim of the PETRUS II project is to enable present and future professionals on radioactive waste management in Europe, whatever their initial disciplinary background, to follow a training programme on geological disposal which would be widely recognized across Europe. In addressing the needs of the end-users, access to a combination of education (formal), continuous learning and professional development (non-formal) will be offered and developed within the project.
The PETRUS consortium welcomed a new member, Ecole des Mines de Nantes, France, and the concept of European Credit (Transfer) System for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) was introduced. The partners reviewed the actions decided under the PETRUS II project, including the training scheme and knowledge management. The development of the Geological Disposal Technology Platform (IGD-TP) was also reported.
