19 November 2018

The UK has joined the Generation IV International Forum (GIF), which means the UK can now participate in significant research and development into the next generation of nuclear technologies.

Tom Greatrex, chief executive of the NIA, said:

“The UK becoming party to the GIF framework is positive news for the nuclear sector in the UK. The UK has consistently been a world leader in nuclear technology and joining the GIF will enable us to share our expertise in nuclear research and technology. It will also help facilitate a closer working relationship with the 14 other members of the Forum.”
