University Lecture Series on Nuclear Public Engagement

Experienced individuals from NNL deliver a series of five lectures and associated activities on the topic of Public Engagement in the Nuclear Sector to academic institutions within the UK.

The lecture series covers:

  • UK history of nuclear communications: the good, bad and lessons learned
  • International responses to crisis: communications, “remediation” measures and their psychosocial impact
  • UK approaches to public engagement with nuclear issues
  • International approaches to public engagement with nuclear issues
  • Geological disposal: public engagement and societal impacts

The lecture series provides an overview of public engagement in the nuclear sector for students studying for a nuclear-related degree or with an interest in the nuclear sector.
