Nuclear partnership aims to train next generation of engineers

The National Nuclear Laboratory and the University of Bristol's South West Nuclear Hub have agreed a partnership to fill the nuclear energy skills gap.

The lab and the hub have signed a memorandum of understanding, formalising their plans to work more closely together. This work will include a programme of research with long-term funding to look at current and future applications of nuclear technology and providing support for the development of the next generation of nuclear scientists and engineers.

In a statement published on 12 January, the NNL said that the partnership would help support the UK’s ambitions for nuclear energy at home and overseas, as well as maintaining strategic nuclear capability and skills in essential areas needed in the long term.
