Conference Announcement: University of Liverpool – Academic Workshop on Accident Tolerant Fuels 🗓 🗺

The following event is not organised by the BWR Hub and Network but may be of interest to to our readers. Here is the announcement of the event provided by the University of Liverpool:

Academic Workshop on Accident Tolerant Fuels (ATF)

30th Aug. – 1st Sept. 2017

This workshop focuses on the basis and concepts for Accident tolerant fuels (ATF). Accident tolerant fuels have been a strong focus for development since the Fukushima Dai-ichi accident in Japan, with activity focusing on better understanding nuclear reactor materials under accidents, which are outside standard parameters, leading to the development of so-called accident tolerant fuels. This workshop will provide an opportunity, and overview, of the concepts relevant to accident tolerant fuels, based on the material requirements.

Memorandum of Understanding between Bangor University, Imperial College London and Hitachi-GE.

Professor John G. Hughes (Vice-Chancellor of Bangor University), Kumiaki Moryia (Corporate Chief Engineer at Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy Ltd.), Dr Michael Bluck, (Director of the Centre for Nuclear Engineering at Imperial College London).

Bangor University, Imperial College London and Hitachi-GE signed a memorandum of understanding on October 26th 2016 with the aim of building on a previously signed memorandum between Imperial and Bangor. This new memorandum highlighted the role of Hitachi-GE within the BWR Research Hub and Network who will make a reasonable effort to provide effective guidance, provide access to a number of its leading technical experts who will draw on Hitachi-GE’s amassed corporate understanding of BWR systems and associated technical matters, with the overall aim of the hub to advance cooperation and provide a structured forum for interaction. » Read more

Signing of Memorandum of Understanding between Imperial College and Bangor University

Bangor (Prof. Paul Spencer) and Imperial (Prof. Jeff Magee) sign Memorandum of Understanding

Bangor (Prof. David Shepherd, Pro-Vice Chancellor:Research and Enterprise) and Imperial (Prof. Jeff Magee, Dean of Faculty of Engineering) sign Memorandum of Understanding

Imperial College London and Bangor University signed a memorandum of understanding on the 17th June 2016 with the aim of furthering cooperation between the two universities in the field of Nuclear Engineering.
As a result of this agreement, Imperial will provide its long-standing experience in the field to help Bangor develop an academic programme of Nuclear research and teaching. This is in anticipation of nuclear new-build close to Bangor in the form of Horizon Nuclear Power’s Wylfa Newydd project. This will allow Bangor University to provide high quality training in conjunction with well informed and independent nuclear advice during the renewal of nuclear power in the region. » Read more
