Aims and Objectives
The CINCH-II project is built around three pillars:
- Vocational Education and Training (VET) and
- Distance Learning
These main pillars are supported by two cross-cutting activities – Vision, Sustainability and Nuclear Awareness that includes also dissemination, and Management.
The goals of the project are:
- To further develop and implement the plan for the European master's degree in nuclear chemistry (NRC EuroMaster).
- To complete a pan-European offer of modular training courses for the customers from the end-users, including the accreditation issues. The work will consist in implementation of the course system developed in CINCH-I.
- To develop a Training Passport in Nuclear Chemistry and prepare the grounds for the European Credit system for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) application in nuclear chemistry.
- To implement modern e-learning tools developed in CINCH-I and to further develop new tools for the distance learning aiming at enhancement of the teaching in nuclear science. Introduction of such systems substantially decreased demand for actual travel of trainers and trainees across the EU while enabling to achieve the results expected from a complex system including extensive mobility.
- To lay the foundations of a Nuclear Chemistry Education and Training Platform as a future sustainable Euratom Fission Training Scheme (EFTS) in Nuclear Chemistry, based on the already established CINCH consortium and its Associated Partners.
- To develop a Sustainable Systems for Mobility securing mechanisms for an efficient mobility program of trainers and trainees within the Nuclear Chemistry Network. This directly relates to the requirement for the facilitation of mobility of trainers and trainees across the EU.
- To develop methods of raising awareness of the possible options for nuclear chemistry in potential students, academia and industry. This relates to the requirement for a feedback from the ‘employers’ from public or private sectors.
