Up to now there was no collaboration among all V4 countries in nuclear field on the academic level. We would like to extend already established collaborations and increase our expertise and range. This first common project will help to developed closer relationships in education and training and of course also in research and development field.

The special training course will be organized by Czech Technical University, Slovak University of Technology, University of Warsaw and Budapest University of Technology and Economics, leaders in education of staff for nuclear sector in V4 countries.

Our goal is to develop the collaboration between students, researchers and professionals to ensure the quality of nuclear education and training in all of the V4 countries.

Nuclear power plants in Visegrad countries

Nuclear energy in Visegrad countries

All of the Visegrad countries either operate nuclear power plants or plan to do so. In Czech Republic about 29% of electricity is generated in nuclear power plants, in Hungary 50% and in Slovakia 55%. Poland, as a newcomer nuclear country, plans to introduce the nuclear power into to its energy mix till 2033, according to the government’s policy.

The most important issue is education and training of people in various fields within nuclear industry (nuclear power plants operation, regulatory body, radiation protection, utilization of neutrons, etc.). Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary have been working on human resource development in this industry for nearly 50 years and there is already established collaboration in this field. Although Poland has lack of experts specializing in nuclear power plants licensing and operation, there is long experience in the operation of research reactors and their application to production of radiopharmaceuticals.

Developing of international cooperation between academic centers is very important since sharing of knowledge and experience in education and training will increase value of our graduates in the labor market. By organization of common training we want to give students chance to meet the best experts in this area and make new contacts that will be helpful in their future.
