NDA in context: the who, what, why, when and where of UK decommissioning
Registration is via the Nuclear Industry Association website.Event page
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.Event page
The South West Nuclear Hub will be exhibiting in the Innovation Zone of this event, showcasing the latest technologies from our research network.
The biggest networking event in Europe for nuclear decommissioning
The NDA Estate Supply Chain Event is organised by the industry for the industry. Last year’s showcase event attracted around 1,600 delegates, providing opportunities to network with more than 300 exhibiting companies. With a particular focus on SMEs, the aim is also to attract new businesses to the nuclear decommissioning sector.
A large programme of projects looking into nuclear decommissioning has been announced, that will see a consortium of 11 universities collaborate with industry on over 40 projects with funding totalling over £9m. This includes Hub members the universities of Bristol and Southampton, as well as Cavendish Nuclear. Building on a core grant of £4.6 million […]
