NuFuel Workshop 2021

The NuFuel 2021 workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Fuel synthesis & fabrication
  • Post-irradiation examination
  • Irradiation design & preparation
  • Separate effect studies
  • Fuel performance modelling and licensing
  • Thermodynamics of nuclear fuel


The NuFuel workshop was initiated by CEA-DEN and JRC Karlsruhe under the auspices of the European Energy Research Alliance’s Joint Program on Nuclear Materials (JPNM) in order to establish stronger and more-lasting collaborative links between European institutes, to provide a forum where dialogue between experts is fostered, and to give students and young scientists the possibility to present their work and discuss with experts in the field.

Registration and Abstract Submissions

Abstract submission is expected to be opened March 2021.

Modelling in Nuclear Science and Engineering Seminar

The Nuclear Institute is delighted to announce this year’s seminar will be held virtually to ensure the safety of all of our delegates.

This event is designed to further explore recent innovative developments in engineering simulation, and inspire the modelling communities in order to help reduce uncertainties associated with the analysis that in many cases support the plant design, its supporting safety case and operation.

The 2020 event will see a mixture of invited prominent speakers from the nuclear community, where the latest advances and learning from modelling in nuclear science and engineering will be discussed; and we are seeking abstracts from designers, practitioners or researchers who wish to submit a presentation at this popular seminar.


Ticket prices range from £50 for students to £140. Please see website for full details.
