Nuclear R&D competition - applicants briefing event, 17th November

As part of the Government’s commitment to supporting clean, secure and affordable energy, BEIS recently announced the first phase of their nuclear R&D programme with funding in excess of £20m.

Five technology themes have been prioritised within the nuclear innovation and R&D programme which will target improving the prospects for the economic deployment of nuclear power technologies in the UK, skills development, business growth and export opportunities

These are as follows (with the delivery mechanism in brackets):

  • Advanced fuels (Invitation to Tender (ITT) through BEIS)
  • Reactor design (ITT through BEIS)
  • Recycle and waste management (ITT through BEIS)
  • Nuclear Safety and security (ITT through BEIS)
  • Advanced Manufacturing and Materials (SBRI competition, managed by Innovate UK)

This event will provide information on the technical scope of the programmes, how to apply for funding for each of the themes and their associated timescales and budgets
