Continuing our valuable and successful nuclear modelling events over recent years, the Nuclear Institute is delighted to announce this year’s seminar will be held at Bangor University, North Wales.

The University’s Nuclear Futures Institute is developing a world-leading capability in nuclear science and engineering, fostering industrial links and opportunities and works closely with the BWR Hub. The Nuclear Futures Institute is also a key partner in the EPSRC sponsored Centre for Doctoral Training in Nuclear Energy Futures.

This event is designed to further explore recent innovative developments in engineering simulation, and inspire the modelling communities in order to help reduce uncertainties associated with the analysis that in many cases support the plant design, its supporting safety case and operation.

Our 2020 event will see a mixture of invited prominent speakers from the nuclear community, where the latest advances and learning from modelling in nuclear science and engineering will be discussed; and we are seeking abstracts from designers, practitioners or researchers who wish to submit a presentation at this popular seminar.

We will also welcome those wishing to submit an abstract for a poster presentation.

The Seminar will also host an Evening Dinner on Thursday evening, 28th May serving a delicious 3-course meal with locally-sourced high-quality ingredients. We are finalising arrangements with a very special speaker for this dinner and will announce the details shortly.
