Members of NIRAB were invited, by Ministerial decision, for a period of three years which ran from January 2014 to December 2016. Members were unpaid.
Members were selected from a range of sectors of the nuclear industry in order to provide credible, authoritative and expert advice:
Public bodies who engage in research, including the UK’s national nuclear fission and fusion laboratories.
Universities with significant research centres and programmes, and who are able to represent a wider academic nuclear research interest.
Companies who conduct or fund significant innovation and research programmes and are representative of the key elements of the UK nuclear fuel cycle.
Representatives from other advisory bodies with significant interests.
Members were individuals with the credibility and position to best represent their fields. Members were chosen to provide a cross section of sectoral and subject expertise. Members were appointed as individuals and were expected to represent the interests of their sectors rather than just their employer.
