Following last year’s launch, we will be holding the second Nuclear Week in Parliament in the week beginning the 12th September.

Nuclear Week in Parliament 2021 saw hundreds of parliamentarians and industry representatives engage over a range of events during the week. Much like last year, this year’s Nuclear Week in Parliament is going to be a packed few days with multiple events and receptions, plus opportunities for NIA members to hold their own, complementary meetings.

The purpose of Nuclear Week in Parliament is to promote the opportunities that nuclear energy presents within Parliament, to bring together key stakeholders and decision-makers to hold productive conversations and to help drive forward the UK nuclear industry.

The week will also serve as the run-up to Party Conferences, at which the NIA and member companies will be running events.

In February/March, we sought expressions of interest for participation in Nuclear Week in Parliament 2022, including: sponsorship, which will secure you places for all events and a stand at the skills and apprenticeships fair; hosting a complementary event; and attendance at the events (note that priority will be given to sponsors).

Further details on the events and sponsorship are below.

The NIA will be organising the following key events during Nuclear Week in Parliament 2022:

  • Nuclear Energy APPG Welcome Reception – hosted by Virginia Crosbie MP
    Monday 12th September, 7pm
