Description

Royce ‘Materials for Nuclear Energy’ Community Workshop

On 9 January 2018 a facilitated Workshop for the Royce ‘nuclear’ community will take place at The University of Manchester, ahead of the Henry Royce Institute for Advanced Materials Research Community Conference ‘Shaping the Future of Royce’ on 10 January.

The overall purpose of the Workshop is to provide the nuclear materials research community with an understanding of the nuclear core area in Royce, to develop ways for Royce to work with the wider nuclear community, and identify priority research topics which Royce can support.

The specific aims of the Workshop are to:

  • Explore views on Royce and the opportunities it presents to organisations and institutions in the UK nuclear research and development sector;
  • Review the vision for the nuclear core area (to be circulated to attendees ahead of the Workshop) and consider major long-term nuclear research challenges which Royce should address;
  • Develop ways of working with the wider nuclear community and define the Way Forward and Agreed Actions
