Bangor University Nuclear Futures Institute
Bangor University is developing a world leading capability in nuclear science and engineering, the focal point of which is the Nuclear Futures Institute. This will establish North Wales as a global centre, delivering international partnerships and opportunities from a rich mix of existing and new talent in support of the local and regional economy.
With nuclear decommissioning and nuclear new-build projects on its doorstep, and an increasing number of businesses from the nuclear supply chain becoming active in the area, the University is focussing on existing and emerging nuclear power generation technologies including Pressurised Water Reactors (PWR), (Advanced) Boiling Water Reactors ((A)BWR) and Small Modular Reactors (SMR).
Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE) is the UK’s national laboratory for fusion research. CCFE is based at Culham Science Centre in Oxfordshire, and is owned and operated by the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA).
Nuclear Engineering Centre of Doctoral Training
The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Nuclear Energy Futures: A postgraduate training consortium comprising Imperial College London, University of Cambridge, University of Bristol, The Open University and Bangor University.
Diamond Light Source
Diamond Light Source is the UK’s national synchrotron science facility. It works like a giant microscope, harnessing the power of electrons to produce bright light that scientists can use to study anything from fossils to jet engines to viruses and vaccines.
Diamond is a not-for-profit limited company funded as a joint venture by the UK Government as part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) through the Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC), and in partnership with the Wellcome Trust. The synchrotron is free at the point of access through a competitive application process, provided that the results are in the public domain. Over 14,000 researchers from across both academia and industry use Diamond to conduct experiments, assisted by approximately 620 staff.
Uranium Medical Research Institute
The Uranium Medical Research Institute (UMRI) is committed to the advancement of education for the public benefit on the effects of uranium and transuranic elements on humans and the biosphere by conducting and publishing independent, objective and expert scientific and medical research on the subject.
Rutherford Appleton Laboratory
RAL’s pioneering work in areas such as particle physics, scientific computing, laser development, space research, and technology addresses some of the important challenges facing society.
National Physical Laboratory
As the UK’s National Measurement Institute, NPL develops and maintains the national primary measurement standards. From new antibiotics to tackle resistance and more effective cancer treatments to unhackable quantum communications and superfast 5G, technological advances must be built on a foundation of reliable measurement to succeed.
National Nuclear Laboratory
The National Nuclear Laboratory brings together the UK’s nuclear research and development capability into one organisation. Their workforce represents a combined 10,000 years of expertise in nuclear science and technology and they’re continuing to grow.
Public Health England
PHE exists to protect and improve the nation’s health and wellbeing, and reduce health inequalities. This includes radiation exposure
Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre
The Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre helps UK manufacturers win work across the nuclear sector – in new build, operations and decommissioning – and in other quality-critical industries. Our facilities and services are open to all.
Dalton Nuclear Institute
The University of Manchester’s Dalton Nuclear Institute is the UK’s largest and most connected academic provider of nuclear R&D and high-level skills development.
South West Nuclear Hub
The South West Nuclear Hub provides a focus for civil nuclear research, innovation and skills in the south west of the UK.
