IET conference: Nuclear engineering for safety, control and security

The UK Government’s £200m boost for the nuclear sector is centred on embracing innovation and cutting-edge technology. This is welcome news for the industry and exciting times. It’s not been known for its pace of change, but that seems set to alter.

Fully supported by the Regulator, Nuclear Engineering for safety, control and security has always addressed the challenges faced by those working in the sector. The mix of practical guidance for today’s issues and exploring new technology for future application has proved popular.

Workshops and shorter presentations provide real-world advice for C&I engineers, managers and safety specialists as well as students and those wanting to move into Nuclear.

Benefits of attending

  • An opportunity for you to question the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) in a less formal situation than an inspection. They are great supporters of this event and welcome the chance to talk to you there.
  • Aimed at control & instrumentation, design and systems engineers, safety case authors and managers, all talks will be relevant to you.
  • Technical sessions always give you practical advice for current challenges and make you consider what innovation is right for nuclear new build in the UK and globally.
  • Half day workshops encourage you to take part in discussions to learn more about important subjects.


Key speakers include:

Prof Barry Lennox

Director RAIN, University of Manchester

Dr Rob Buckingham

Director UKAEA, Head of RACE

Stuart Crooks

Managing Director HPC, EDF Energy


Civil Nuclear Sector Lead, National Cyber Security Centre

Neil Blundell

Principal Nuclear Inspector, ONR

Postdocs in Nuclear Engineering Meeting: University of Oxford

The annual Postdocs in Nuclear Energy meeting (PiNE) will be hosted by the University of Oxford in 2018. PiNE offers the opportunity for post-doctoral or equivalent level researchers to get together in an informal environment, share their work and learn what else is going on in the nuclear research community. A range of speakers from the nuclear energy sector will give presentations and will be on hand to offer career advice and insights into the future of nuclear energy research in the UK.

The registration fee will include lunch and a formal evening meal and poster session at St Edmunds Hall in Oxford and delegates are given the opportunity to attend a tour of the Joint European Torus (JET) and the recently established Materials Research Facility (MRF) located at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy.
