UK researchers asked to collab with US on nuclear energy

UK researchers asked to collab with US on nuclear energy: Researchers within the UK are being requested to apply for a portion of £2.5 million in funding for nuclear energy study with a US partner.

The funding will allow as much as 5 separate projects to participate in the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Nuclear Energy University Programme (NEUP), for a period of up to 36 months.

Projects must apply to one of 5 areas: understanding, predicting & optimising the physical properties, structure & dynamics of molten salts; next gen light-water reactor fuels for small modular applications; disposal of spent fuel & waste disposition; advanced small modular reactors; as well as automated optimisation for reactor core design.

Pre-applications are required to be turned in by the US partners to the DOE by 22nd September 2021.

Nearly 80% of the full economic cost of the project will be funded, with help also originating from the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

UK located researchers are required to be employed by an eligible research organisation as well as not possess a postdoctoral level fellowship.
