Following the announcement by BEIS to reconvene NIRAB, members have now been appointed following an Expression of Interest process run by NIRO. The new Chair of NIRAB is Mike Tynan, who brings a wealth of experience in the nuclear industry to the role, as well as providing a bridge from the initial incarnation of NIRAB through his membership from 2014-16.
NIRAB will be responsible for providing independent advice to Government on:
The impact and delivery of Government’s nuclear innovation programme;
Opportunities for greater collaboration with industry and international partners;
The potential for innovation to reduce the cost of the nuclear life cycle
NIRAB's inaugural meeting is to take place on 10th April 2018.
