Summary on Grant Application Form
Sustaining the UK's nuclear capability and expertise requires a long term commitment to both appropriate facilities and a trained workforce to operate in (and help shape) the regulatory environment. Phase 2 of the NNUF project will support the installation and use of major new national nuclear facilities focussed on research challenges not covered by current investment, world-leading equipment for research on radioactive samples in universities with special nuclear expertise and the expansion of facilities at national laboratories to add new national capabilities for analysing radioactive materials. A particular focus of the management grant will be to encourage wide usage of these new facilities by UK researchers by establishing and operating an access scheme. The research undertaken on NNUF(2) facilities will support plant life extension programmes, future decommissioning and waste storage needs and the new build strategies, including the UK Advanced Modular Reactor programme.
