Nuclear Science to Benefit Society – Our Strategic Plan

We’re proud to launch our Strategic Plan, which sets out how NNL, the UK’s national laboratory for nuclear fission, is benefiting society through nuclear science.

Throughout the plan, you will find details of the scale of our necessary ambition and commitment to help solve global challenges in four strategic areas:

  • Clean energy
  • Health and nuclear medicine
  • Environmental restoration
  • Security and non-proliferation

This is a programme of work that, in addition to helping the UK meet net zero by 2050, will deliver on the government’s agenda of making the UK a science superpower whilst bringing high-skilled jobs to the North West and contributing the economic recovery from the impact of the global pandemic.

We hope our Strategic Plan excites you, as it does all of us, about our potential and ambition as we look to a #NewClearFuture.
