The meeting is the annual showcase for our research and is a good opportunity to meet with others involved in 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 from BEIS, CoRWM, JAEA and JSO, Ukraine.
Presentations will cover research from our 4 themes:
- Spent Fuel
- Nuclear Materials
- Integrated Waste Management
- Site Decommissioning & Remediation
TRANSCEND (Transformative Science and Engineering for Nuclear Decommissioning) is a collaborative research consortium of 11 universities and 8 industry partners.
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.
