NuSec Network Summer Pilot Project Posters

Over the past 4 years the Nuclear Security Science Network has funded  20 Pilot Projects covering a broad range of topics.

Pilot Projects are undertaken by undergraduates for 2-3 months during the Summer months. Research is focused on the development of early ideas, small proof of concept or feasibility studies.

Research outputs were presented at our annual Technical Workshops as an A0 Poster.

Each poster summarises the research methodology, results and recommendations for each project .
