Any of the potential options for the nuclear power – both the renaissance, if any, or the phase out – will require significant numbers of the respective specialists, amongst others the nuclear and/or radiochemists. In parallel, a significant demand exists for these specialists in non-energy fields, such as environmental protection, radiopharmacy, nuclear medicine, biology, authorities, etc....

The first EU project CINCH (Cooperation in education in nuclear chemistry) 2010-2013 was planning the Euromaster degree in nuclear and radiochemistry. The second CINCH project 2013-2016 will implement the degree. According to present plans a consortium of European universities will apply for the NRC Euromaster label from the European Chemistry Thematic Network (ECTN) which is the body granting...

Cooperation in education and training In Nuclear Chemistry - CINCH-II project - aims at coordination of education and training schemes in nuclear and radiochemistry (NRC). One of the specific objectives of the project is therefore to identify the current level of NRC education in Europe. Surveying universities and various educational programmes was started under CINCH-I during the years...

An open access database, implemented as a "Wiki" (same technology as e.g. used by Wikipedia ) was set up to enable university teachers and others to share teaching material and experiences. The basic idea is that teachers and institutions will share and co-develop teaching material for Nuclear and Radiochemistry use, in particular calculation and laboratory exercises. Furthermore, the Wiki...

Technetium and the actinides are radioelements of importance to the nuclear fuel cycle. Compounds composed of these elements are used in nuclear fuel, separations, safeguard applications, and isotope utilization. These radioelements also represent an underexplored section of the periodic table. Studies on compounds with technetium and the actinides provide opportunities to expand basic...
