Nuclear Modelling 2022: 5th Annual Modelling in Nuclear Science and Engineering Seminar 2022

Final banner                                                     

The Nuclear Institute is delighted to again offer this annual event for those working in nuclear science and modelling. Continuing from our previous very successful online event we look forward to welcoming nuclear academics, scientists, engineers and other practitioners to this popular seminar. Having extended the event over two days we also want to extend your learning and networking through an optional dinner on the Thursday evening.

Room G41, Department of Earth Science and Engineering, Royal School of Mines, Imperial College London, Prince Consort Road, South Kensington, SW7 2BP

Getting here: The nearest tube station is South Kensington. Exit the station and follow signs for Exhibition Road where the Natural History and Science Museums are located. About 500m up Exhibition Road you will see Imperial College on your left. Pass the main entrance building (with large glass front) and Prince consort is the next road on your left. The building on the corner is the Royal School of mines, the entrance is 30m along Prince Consort Road.

Please note that the Piccadilly line is closed at South Kensington. Next nearest stop is Gloucester Road Station

From Gloucester Road Station:

Head left from station exit. At cross-roads, cross over Cromwell Road and head up Gloucester Road for about 400m. Turn right on to Queen's Gate Terrace, and follow to the end of the road (200m).  At the end, turn left onto Queen's Gate, and then take the first right on to Prince Consort Road. Head toward the end of Prince Consort Road, the last building on the right is the Royal School of Mines where you will find the main entrance.
