CHERNE is an open European academic network for cooperation in Higher Education on Radiological and Nuclear Engineering. Its goals are

  • to share competencies and facilities in organising teaching activities for their students, mainly at the Master level
  • to enhance the mutual support by learning from each other, by exchanging experiences and by regular mutual reflections

All the 4 EU partners of RADIUM project are members of the CHERNE network, whereas Belarus State University is the only Belarusian member. The project also helps the non-CHERNE members to familiarize and benefit from the network. Indeed, CHERNE Network pays great attention to the highest standards of nuclear education in Europe and beyond its borders. Through the RADIUM project, CHERNE contributes to supporting Belarusian universities in developing a Master program of high quality, training academic staff and providing comments and recommendations following the analysis of the educational content. CHERNE feedback is important to harmonize the educational activity of Belarusian Universities according to the European educational standards.
