Radiation protection is a major challenge in the industrial applications of
ionising radiation, both nuclear and non-nuclear, as well as in other areas
such as the medical and research domains. The overall objective of this
textbook is to participate to the development of European high-quality scheme
and good practices for education and training in radiation protection (RP),
coming from the new Council Directive 2013/59/Euratom laying down basic safety
standards for protection against the dangers arising from exposure to ionising
radiation. These ERPTS (European Radiation Protection Training Scheme)
reflects the needs of the Radiation Protection Expert (RPE) and the Radiation
Protection Officer (RPO), specifically with respect to the Directive
2013/59/Euratom in all sectors where ionising radiation are applied. To
reflect the RPE training scheme, six chapters have been developed in this
textbook: • Radioactivity and nuclear physics • Interaction of ionising
radiation with matter • Dosimetry • Biological effects of ionising radiation •
Detection and measurement of ionising radiation • Uses of sources of ionising
radiation The result is a homogeneous textbook, dealing with the ERPTS
learning outcomes suggested by ENETRAPII project (European Network on
Education and Training in RAdiological Protection II) from the 7th Framework
Programme. A cyberbook is also part of the whole training material to develop
the concept of “learning more” ( The production of
this first module “basics” training material, in the combined form of a
textbook plus a cyberbook as learning tools, will contribute to facilitate
mutual recognition and enhanced mobility of these professionals across the
European Union.
