2019 Summer Pilot Project Posters

Following an external competition in Spring 2019, the NuSec Science Network made five awards to Universities for early stage research on topics that could enhance the field of nuclear security.

The value of each award was around ~£4,500. Research was undertaken in the  summer 2019  by undergraduates and supervised by senior Academics. Industry were also involved in some of the projects through the loan of research facilities and equipment

Aspects of these projects will be taken forward by AWE as part of their ongoing relationships with the project teams and will also be further developed in future MSc and Phd University Research.

Posters summarising research methodology, results and recomendations for each pilot project can be viewed and downloaded by clicking on the pilot project title below.
