The UK is at a turning-point in its use of nuclear power. We are witnessing the nation’s first nuclear new-build in over 25 years. The Government is committed to ambitious targets for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
The UK is in the process of withdrawing from both the EU and Euratom. This is set against a backdrop of worldwide strategic refocusing of nuclear research effort towards Generation IV reactor technology.
As part of the prestigious Colston Research Society series, this symposium will bring together experts from industry and academia to examine the future of nuclear energy generation in the UK. It will cover reactor technology for UK civil applications, nuclear R&D capability and current plans for new build and decommissioning.
This two-day symposium will be held at the impressive setting of the We The Curious science museum in the city centre. It will be accompanied by a public lecture by Lord Hutton on the evening of the 24th October.
