The purpose of the South West Nuclear Hub is to facilitate leading-edge research in science and engineering, supporting the nuclear energy industry in the UK and around the world. This ranges from safe decommissioning and legacy clean-up to construction, operation and development of present and future nuclear energy systems.

The £18bn Hinkley Point C new build project in Somerset underlines the need for the region to pull together to successfully deliver this nuclear renaissance.

The Hub draws together scientists, engineers and experts from across three sectors of Higher Education, Industry and Government to complement the UK’s research and teaching capability and support nuclear power’s contribution to a low-carbon, affordable and secure energy system for the UK.

The time is right and the opportunity is here; this is the ideal moment to join the South West Nuclear Hub.
