The Nuclear Innovation and Research Advisory Board (NIRAB) has published a report into Clean Growth Through Innovation.

The report provides an initial set of findings and recommendations in response to the tasks set by Government:

  • To monitor the delivery and impact of the BEIS Nuclear Innovation Programme (NIP) and recommend any amendments that may be necessary in the light of outputs from the programme and developments in the nuclear landscape
  • To advise where innovation could drive down costs across the whole nuclear life-cycle
  • To identify opportunities for greater collaboration with industry and international partners

Responding to the report, Peter Haslam, Head of Policy at the NIA said:

“We welcome the findings of this interesting publication, it lines up with the challenges set out in the Nuclear Sector Deal, showing our goals are attainable, and we hope to get a positive response from Government to it.”
