NDA Sort and segregate competition briefing

The Knowledge Transfer Network is running a briefing on the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and Innovate UK 'Sort and segregate nuclear waste' competition.

The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, in partnership with Innovate UK, is delivering an SBRI competition to fund innovative ideas that will lead to cheaper, safer and faster ways of sorting and segregating radioactive waste. Successful applicants will receive 100% funding to develop and demonstrate their technologies. £3.9m funding (inc VAT) is available for innovative ways to sort and segregate radioactive waste.


  • Competition launches Monday 27 July
  • Competition opens 17 August
  • On-line briefing event 25 August
  • Competition closes 11 November


Who should attend – Applications can be led by any organisation, of any size and from any sector. NDA are keen to encourage technology transfer from other industrial sectors (outside nuclear) that carry out multiple complex automated tasks, rapidly and safely. This might include, for example, food processing, logistics, waste management, high value manufacturing or medical. NDA are particularly looking to fund innovative projects that combine existing technologies into a single integrated system.
