A new £9.4 million research programme will help link nuclear industry experts with academics and PhD students in the UK to tackle radioactive waste challenges. Dubbed TRANSCEND – Transformative Science and Engineering for Nuclear Decommissioning – it will consist of 40 projects lasting up to four years each to help build the next generation of nuclear experts as well as develop technical solutions in dealing with decommissioning. The research topics to be explored include integrated waste management, site decommissioning and remediation, spent fuel and nuclear materials. The University of Leeds will lead a consortium of 11 universities, including Imperial College London, Lancaster, Birmingham, Bristol, Sheffield, Southampton and Surrey.
