To maximise impact with our local, national and international delegates, we have a number of pre-conference activities taking place on Wednesday, 20th September. These events are open to all, even those who are not planning to attend the conference. Book your tickets via the 'tickets' link above.

The nuclear matchmaking event is a chance to meet potential partners and see how your business can benefit in this sector. Supported by Enterprise Europe Network, this FREE event is the perfect way to grow your business by connecting to other businesses.

Women in Nuclear (WiN) speed mentoring session gives early and mid-career invididuals in the nuclear industry a fantastic opportunity to get one-on-one advice and insight from industry leaders to help further their careers in nuclear.
