How to engage

Central to the Hub strategy is collaboration, building upon the success of the Bristol-Oxford NRC. This is driven by a membership structure that forges a productive alliance between academic and industrial institutions.

There are a number of ways your organisation can engage with us – please contact the South West Nuclear Hub Engagement Team for further information:

Hub Membership





Dedicated contact Jean Vogel-Gourgand, Research and Enterprise Development Programme Manager

Research and Consultancy


International Partnerships and Alliances

We establish longer-term agreements to pursue a large-scale collaborative programme of research and engagement, that can often extend beyond the Hub to the wider university.

These offer enormous potential benefit to both parties, built through in-depth involvement with research and education at all levels.

Examples include educational-based Memorandums of Understanding with Arts et Metiers (ENSAM) and the University of South China, and strategic industrial partnerships with EDF.

Public Outreach

The Hub coordinates regional and national outreach activities, focusing on STEM engagement in schools and promoting a clean energy message to the general public. Your organisation can engage by:
- Contribute resources to the programme
- Provide support for developing and delivering events
- Partner at events and school visits

Hold a conference or event

The University of Bristol has a number of facilities for hosting large conferences, exhibitions or seminars.

The city centre location makes it an ideal place to hold an event in the South West and the Hub can provide support to set up and run large-scale activities.

Student Recruitment

Masters students on the MSc Nuclear Science and Engineering programme can be targeted for recruitment to existing positions or graduate programmes.

The Hub runs an annual nuclear careers event specifically for the industry open to students from all Hub university

Directly address your immediate recruitment needs; target some of the brightest graduates in your field.

Educational Engagement

Many options are available to engage with undergraduate or postgraduate students during their programme.

- Group and individual projects - set students real
challenges that your organisation needs solving
- Guest lectures and industrial masterclasses
- Mentoring of small groups of students to share expertise and identify talent

The Hub can facilitate engagement with students in many disciplines, including Engineering, Physics, Chemistry and
Earth Sciences.
