The BWR Research Hub and Network has been established to assist the UK research and industrial communities to embrace Boiling Water Reactor technology and participate in creating the next generation of these reactors.
The BWR Hub is a joint venture set up by Bangor University and Imperial College with support from Hitachi-GE Nuclear and the Welsh Government.
The research network has a number of key components. These are:
- Steering Group: responsible for overseeing the good governance of the BWR Research Hub and Network in accordance with the Terms of Reference.
- Research Forum: responsible for the day to day running of the BWR Research Hub and Network.
- Project Office: where BWR research priorities and potential projects are discussed.
