Visit Report: Nuclear Academics Meeting 2017

The UK Nuclear Academics Meeting was held in Lancaster on the 4th and 5th of September 2017. The meeting was an opportunity for the Nuclear Academics across the UK to come together and discuss recent developments across the Nuclear Community. The talks were broken down with a Nuclear Research Consortia session and two Panel Sessions on Policy and Implementation on the first day and an International Programme Session, followed by a UK National Programme Session and Education and Training Updates on the second day.

On the last day of the meeting there was an opportunity to take a tour of Heysham Power Station, which was a great opportunity to explore an operating nuclear power station. The next Nuclear Academics meeting will be held in Liverpool and the following one will be held in Bangor.
