CORONA II Project


  Enhancement of training capabilities in VVER technology through establishment of a VVER training academy


This project receives funding from the EURATOM Research and Training programme 

3 years under grant agreement N° 662125.

 

The main objective of the proposed CORONA II project is to enhance the safety of nuclear installations through further improvement of the training capabilities aimed at building up the necessary personnel competencies. Specific objective of the proposed CORONA II project is to proceed with the development of state-of-the-art regional training center for VVER competence (which will be called CORONA Academy), whose pilot implementation through CORONA project (2011-2014) proved to be viable solution for supporting transnational mobility and lifelong learning amongst VVER operating countries. The project aims at continuation of the European cooperation and support in the area for preservation and further development of expertise in the nuclear field by improvement of higher education and training. This objective will be realized through networking between universities, research organisations, regulatory bodies, industry and any other organisations involved in the application of nuclear science, ionising radiation and nuclear safety.

The proposed CORONA Academy will maintain the nuclear expertise by gathering the existing and generating new knowledge in the VVER area. It will bring together the most experienced trainers in the different aspects of the area within EU and abroad, thus overcoming the mobility challenge that stands ahead the nuclear education and training community. The selected form of the CORONA Academy, together with the online availability of the training opportunities will allow trainees from different locations to access the needed knowledge on demand. The available set of courses will cover the whole range of training of VVER specialists from the university until reaching high professional skills and competences in the area.

 

VVER PORTAL

The VVER knowledge portal is an outcome of the previous EURATOM Project for the Establishment of a Regional Center of Competence for VVER Technology and Nuclear Applications (CORONA I project).

 

http://www.vverportal.com

The objective of the portal is to:

  • Provide a structured system for easy, computer based access to any VVER related knowledge and information, which can be used by staff to maintain and improve their productivity and performance.
  • Preserve VVER specific nuclear knowledge, skills and competencies.
  • Facilitate communication for the sharing and growth of corporate knowledge.

 

UPDATES

The Kickoff meeting of the project was held on 16-17 September 2015.
