Open to industry professionals and specialists, the event aims to bring together PhD students to “share knowledge and learn about the cutting-edge research and innovations” currently being developed for nuclear decommissioning.

Rick Short, NDA University Interactions Research Manager, said: “This research helps ensure the challenges of nuclear decommissioning are fully understood, pushes the boundaries to explore emerging ideas and innovation, and seizes the opportunities created by the development of new technologies.

“We have put together an agenda that uses innovative sessions to promote knowledge transfer between specialist groups and supports the students transitioning from academia to roles within the nuclear industry.”

Key topics at the forum will include:

Deploying new technologies on sites: Challenges and opportunities.

Strategic research collaborations: Building for success

Innovation and regulation: Finding new ways forward

Nuclear decommissioning: Developing a strategy for the future

Running from the 27 to 29 February, 2024, in Sheffield, it will be co-located with the annual Nuclear Waste and Decommissioning Research Forum (NWDRF) Nuclear Frontiers conference.

The event is part of the authority’s efforts to develop the next generation of subject matter experts and technical leads, that can can help speed up the “clean-up of the UK’s civil legacy”.
