Following the success of previous editions, the British Embassy in Paris and Egis are hosting the UK-France Civil Nuclear Forum on 7 November 2022 at the British Ambassador’s Residence.

This year’s tailored programme will feature a day of presentations, B2Bs and networking opportunities.

The event will build on the strengths of both the French and UK supply chains to access opportunities in the nuclear markets and promote international collaboration on both sides of the Channel. We will cover nuclear policy, new build, decommissioning & waste management and fusion.
