One of the key challenges in the nuclear industry right now is bringing innovation into the supply chain, to solve problems and bring down cost, while maintaining safety.
Small businesses, universities and companies from other sectors all have the ability to disrupt the current supply chain. This informal workshop provided by SW Nuclear Hub and Nuclear South West will provide examples of innovation that have been adopted by the nuclear supply chain and offer practical help for any company interested in connecting with nuclear.
Speakers from SW Nuclear Hub, Nuclear KTN, Forrest Brown, Hinkley Supply Chain Programme, and local companies will share their experience and knowledge.
During the workshop we’ll explore:
- the benefits and challenges for bringing new solutions into nuclear
- how universities connect with industry
- support and funding available to small businesses, including R&D tax credits
- examples of how companies have successfully entered the nuclear sector
At the end of the event there will be an opportunity to connect with contacts in the industry over a networking lunch.
