NIRAB in partnership with the Nuclear Innovation and Research Office (NIRO) provides independent, expert advice to Government on the research and innovation needed for nuclear energy to play a significant role in the UK’s future low carbon and secure energy mix and to create the environment in which the UK nuclear industry can contribute significantly to our economy.
Government tasks NIRO to reconvene NIRAB with a new and broader membership. NIRO will be issuing a call for Expressions of Interest for potential new members of NIRAB.
NIRAB has overseen an update to the UK Civil Nuclear R&D Landscape survey. The survey provides information on funding levels, research focus and capability across the UK.
