Spark is Back

Spark! is Back


Bigger and brighter than ever, The Spark! Contest has returned for its third edition. Sponsored by EDF, Rolls-Royce and many more, the contest offers a unique opportunity for young professionals to earn a step up in their careers. The Spark! writing contest poses entrants to challenge the status quo around an energy conscious topic.

Last year saw over 30 finalists come together with industry mentors spanning Spark’s extensive partnerships and sponsor organisations at the residence of the French Ambassador in London. This was followed by a visit to the Hinkley Point C site prior to their first nuclear concrete pour and dinner on board HMS Great Britain in Bristol.

This year’s subject is:


What is the role of nuclear technology in a world of growing alternative power and digital innovation?
