Advanced Nuclear Reactor Design seminar
The Institution of Mechanical Engineers is closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and in line with government and FCO / WHO guidelines is implementing measures to ensure the health and safety of our attendees and supporting staff at IMechE events. Following UK Government advice to restrict social interaction and movement in public areas, we have therefore taken the decision to postpone the Advanced Nuclear Reactor Design seminar due to take place on 2 June 2020.
Please be assured that your delegate ticket will be carried over to the new event date. However, if you would like to refund your ticket, please let us know and we will aim to process this as soon as possible. We hope you understand that, under the present fluctuating circumstances, it is not possible for us to confirm the date at this precise moment, however the new date will be communicated to you as soon as the scale of the impact of COVID-19 becomes clearer.
With the need for greater efficiency in power generation, nuclear sources are seen as a key source to boost renewable energy efforts as part of the future energy mix. As well as looking at traditional nuclear plants, the power generation industry through the Nuclear Sector Deal is looking to achieve greater nuclear innovation in the UK in order to realise cost-effective and efficient energy production through nuclear power. .
Attend the Advanced Nuclear Reactor Design seminar to gain insight into outputs from Working Groups 1 and 5, with a focus on SMR and AMR projects currently in progress across the UK and worldwide. Join the discussion about further developing nuclear power, as well as the key technical challenges to reactor development in the UK and how these are being overcome by industry leaders and researchers.
