Topic and Program

The UNTF meetings are supported by the Nuclear Institute and are organised by The UK Nuclear University Network (www.uknuclear.net).  Recent meetings have been held at Salford (2010), Huddersfield (2011), Birmingham (2012) and London (2013).

The UNTF meetings are aimed at postgraduate researchers working in UK universities on nuclear-related research projects.  They are very informal, and an excellent opportunity to network with present and future colleagues.  Recent graduates working in the nuclear industry are welcome to register.  Priority for oral presentations will be given to postgraduate research students.

Presenting students will receive a subsidy towards the cost of the conference from the Nuclear Institute (NI). The best presentations will receive a prizes, also from NI, and have their paper published in the NI journal Nuclear Future

Topics may include, but are not limited to

  • Materials for nuclear applications
  • Engineering for nuclear applications
  • Chemistry for nuclear applications
  • Physics for nuclear applications
  • Design and Reactor modelling
  • Public perceptions of nuclear power
  • Aging and Life Extension of nuclear power plants
  • New Build (Gen III and III+)
  • Gen IV Concepts and other novel reactors
  • Fusion Energy
  • Nuclear Waste, Decommissioning and Disposal
  • Sensors and Detectors
  • Systems Performance and Safety
  • Risk Assessment
  • Nuclear Policy
  • Control and Instrumentation
  • Nuclear Medicine

There will also be a poster session.  A booklet of abstracts of all posters and presentations will be available.


The meeting took place in the Department of Engineering at Oxford University, with accommodation and the conference dinner at Mansfield College

Mansfield College has a combination of inspiring Victorian Gothic architecture, overlooking one of the largest open quadrangles in Oxford. Ideally located, Mansfield is quietly situated in leafy central Oxford, close to the University Parks and the many historical and architectural highlights of the city.
