Event description


Does your company have the expertise to solve some of the Nuclear Decommissioning sectors challenges? Could you help some of the giants of the industry solve their pressing problems by applying your innovations and ideas used for something entirely different?

Representatives from NDA and Innovus will outline how businesses can apply for funding through their respective schemes.

The Innovus programme is all about helping companies and entrepreneurs to commercialise their bright ideas in the form of support and funding. The latest theme under the spotlight is Nuclear Decommissioning – an industry which is grappling the challenge of decommissioning as well as its current and future operations.

Innovus is bringing in major players Sellafield Ltd. and NDA to give a unique insight into immediate and future challenges and outline the potential opportunities for Cumbrian businesses who may have the knowledge, expertise and vision to help solve them through technology development.

This free event will allow the exchange of information and ideas which aligns with the recent Technology Strategy Board and NDA Developing the Nuclear Supply Chain funding call.

Organiser Innovus

Organiser of Innovus Nuclear Opportunities Event

Innovus is a technology-based economic development programme that aims to support the development of new technology-based products and services, thus creating growth in existing businesses and supporting new startup businesses. The programme is supported by Britain’s Energy Coast and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and delivered by the National Nuclear Laboratory and The University of Manchester's Dalton Nuclear Institute. Innovus can be described diagrammatically:

Having identified a market need, an associated technology idea can be supported through to the market by the provision of:

  • Technical and Business Support
  • Funding
  • Access to Facilities

These three components will allow the right technical development to be undertaken in good time. Successful technical development will lead into commercialisation and the creation of value for the market, provider and investor.
