NNL Welcomes Government’s R&D Roadmap

NNL welcomes the publication today of the Government’s R&D Roadmap, aimed at ensuring the UK is the best place in the world for scientists and researchers. This is particularly important coming after the Prime Minister’s speech yesterday in which he committed to make Britain a science superpower, and once again highlighted the country’s strengths in low carbon energy production including the use of nuclear power.

As the custodian of critical skills and experience for the civil nuclear sector, we especially welcome the commitment to attracting, retaining and developing top talent, and the establishment of the Office for Talent.

We look forward to working with Government and others to ensure that the scientific and technical skills within our sector can be effectively harnessed to deliver innovation to underpin a strong future for the nuclear industry in the UK.

More details of today’s announcements and the R&D Roadmap can be found here.
