From the 20th – 22nd of June 2022, the Nuclear Futures Institute hosted a three-day conference – The Universities’ Nuclear Technology Forum – UNTF. UNTF is one of the oldest nuclear engineering conferences in the world. It provides a great opportunity for early-stage researchers to present work to their peers and build their professional network.
The event was organised with the generous support of the Nuclear Institute, the only 100% nuclear professional membership body that serves only the nuclear sector. The NI supports their members’ professional development and competence for the benefit of the industry and wider society.
The first and second sessions of UNTF 2022 were made up of talks given by the early-career researchers, and these sessions were chaired by Megan Owen of the Nuclear Futures Institute. Leading into the second day, UNTF held a posters and careers session taking the form of a networking event. Talks from key speakers about nuclear career pathways were very well recieved by delegates.
The final day was made up of talks given by nuclear facilities representatives, including NAMRC, BUFFF (Bangor University Fuel Fabrication Facility), Nuclear Materials Atom Probe, Dalton Cumbrian Facility, and the UKAEA.
Nuclear Futures would like to extend our gratitude to all our delegates and speakers for their attendance.
