Abstract: The subject paper reviews and discusses some aspects of education and training in the field of nuclear safeguards and non-proliferation. This is largely inspired on the INMM ESARDA Working Group meeting in Aix-en-Provence in November 2011 and includes additional elements esp. w.r.t. outreach activities (i.e. capacity building efforts outside Europe). The paper will also refer to the NUSASET web-site, its potential and use. In addition, reference is made to the INMM Student Chapters in mechanism, which is a specific initiative to foster students to work and study in the area of Nuclear Materials Management In Aix-en-Provence a number of challenges and requirements in the subject field were identified : - Standardisation e.g. min. educational and training requirements - Analysis of the stakeholders and their needs e.g. training passports - Infrastructure, tools and approaches used for education and training - Knowledge management and mobility of information and students - Cross fertilization with other fields : export control & security In the mean-time, extra emphasis has been put on capacity building, including education outside Europe. Both for new-comers in the nuclear field and for experienced services, the nuclear safeguards and non-proliferation remains an area with typically little visibility and/or awareness. Dedicated efforts are thus ongoing to promote the education and training in this area e.g. in South-East Asia and elsewhere. Such capacity building efforts are supported under the Instrument for Stability, i.e. financed by DG DEVCO of the European Commission, and will in the future be enhanced further under the so-c alled CBRN Centres of Excellence initiative, in which e.g. the European Commission JRC plays a key role (e.g. in th e areas of RN security and export control) The experience gained in the regular ESARDA course on nuclear safeguards and non-proliferation, held annually at JRC-Ispra and hosted by the Nuclear Security Unit, and its "export" outside Europe, held in February 2013 in Malaysia, will also be reported upon.
