The course is initiated by two pan-European programmes, Petrus-III and Microbiology In Nuclear waste Disposal (MIND). One important aim of the MIND project, granted by European Commission, is to raise awareness of the relevance of microbial issues in otherwise typically abiotic fields of ex-pertise, and to dissipate the knowledge gained in the MIND project to stu-dents and professionals within and beyond the known geomicrobiology expert circles. Similarly PETRUS is a project granted by European Commis-sion whose objective is to promote education and training in geological disposal of radioactive waste.
