Want to contribute to low-carbon energy generation, new fusion technologies and advanced reactor development?
Hear about job opportunities for 2021 entry and network with major companies in the sector.
Open to students of South West Nuclear Hub member Universities (detailed in the Registration section), hear about opportunities for undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers across science and engineering disciplin
This third of three careers sessions will showcase a diverse range of organisations involved in research, decommissioning and waste management, as well as the leading professional body for the sector.
They will each present about their early career opportunities, as well as giving insight into working in the nuclear industry.
These events will take place via Zoom webinar. Please register with your university email account so we can verify you are from a South West Nuclear Hub member university.University of Bristol UWE University of Plymouth University of Southampton University of Oxford
We plan to record these sessions so if you cannot attend live, please still register to gain access to the recording.
A research team from the University of Bristol was selected as one of the five best entries of the International Atomic Energy Agency Crowdsourcing Challenge that sought original concepts for advancing the decommissioning of nuclear facilities or environmental remediation of radiologically contaminated sites. The team’s submission was entitled characterization toolkit to enable accelerated decommissioning activities […]
Industrial and academic members of the South West Nuclear Hub have been successful in the recent announcement of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority Direct Research Portfolio framework. The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority’s (NDA) mission is to clean up the UK’s earliest nuclear sites safely, securely and cost-effectively with care for people and the environment. The Universities of […]
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.
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
Join scientists and engineers that are delivering research and development for decommissioning and waste management in the UK and abroad.
Our annual showcase for R&D is attended by a broad range of delegates, including senior figures within the UK civil nuclear industry. Learn about the mission, build contacts, collaborate on ideas, and challenge the status quo.
Topics covered include site remediation and decommissioning; characterisation, treatment, packaging, conditioning and disposal, waste management and storage; and land management.
Posters from doctoral and post-doctoral researchers are welcome.
Register for free tickets on Eventbrite.Conference Registration
If you are interested in presenting or have a poster to display, please contact Geoff.email@example.com
The Nuclear Waste and Decommissioning Research Forum is a cross industry group that aims to enhance coordination of R&D and technical programmes across UK Site Restoration and Integrated Waste Management activities.
Its membership includes representatives from the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), Radioactive Waste Management (RWM), Site Licence Companies, regulators and organisations with significant nuclear decommissioning liabilities.
This is the 1st Annual Meeting of the ATLANTIC Consortium and will bring together academics, researchers and industrial stakeholders with an interest in accident tolerant fuels.
The meeting will take place over 2 days - Tuesday 21st & Wednesday 22nd January 2020 - and will include oral presentations from our researchers as well as invited speakers.
The meeting dinner will be held on the evening of the 21st January 2020 under the Harrier Jump Jet at IWM North.
The TRANSCEND theme meetings will be held on 11th and 12th November 2019 at The Conference Centre, Lancaster University. We will be running two parallel sessions on each day:
Monday 11th November: Theme 1 Integrated Waste Management and Theme 2 Site Decommissioning & Waste Management
Tuesday 12th November: Theme 3 Spent Fuels and Theme 4 Nuclear Materials
The £9.4million research programme comprises 40 projects which will address some of the key challenges within the areas of nuclear decommissioning and waste management.
The work of the consortium continues, rationalises and extends that previously undertaken on DISTINCTIVE (Decommissioning, Immobilisation and Storage Solutions for Nuclear Waste Inventories) with increased breadth, particularly in bringing together the academic and industrial communities to take more of a whole lifecycle approach to decommissioning and waste management.
The 1st Annual Meeting of the TRANSCEND consortium is being held on the 3rd & 4th April at The Apex City of Bath Hotel. The meeting dinner will be on the 3rd April at The Roman Baths and Pump Room.
This is the 1st Annual Meeting of the TRANSCEND Consortium and it will bring together academics, researchers and industrial stakeholders from across the civil nuclear sector. The meeting is the annual showcase for our research and is a good opportunity to meet with others involved with nuclear waste and decommissioning.
The meeting will take place over 2 days and will include oral and poster presentations from our researchers as well as keynote speakers.
Wednesday 3rd April
Thursday 4th April
Tickets are free and can be found on Eventbrite.
