Abstract

The success of any research programme is dependent on a continuing influx of new expertise, and continuing education to ensure the newest technologies and methods are exploited. In the past decade, a strategic approach has been used to build up the research expertise in the area of radiation protection and risk estimation. The High Level Expert Group (HLEG, www.hleg.de) in their 2009 report on European low-dose research asserted that education and training were key components in the development and maintenance of expertise for research into the risks from low-levels of ionising radiation. Following their recommendations, a Euratom-funded Network of Excellence (DoReMi, www.doremi-noe.net) was setup to develop a platform of European research institutions to coordinate the research programme and develop expertise in the area. We present here the activities initiated by DoReMi and currently continued by CONCERT (www.concert-h2020.eu) in support of education and training in the scientific areas underpinning radiation protection research.
