The University of Manchester

We are creating a UK first-of-a-kind capability for alpha-materials research. This pioneering endeavour will bridge the gap between what can be achieved conventionally, in academia, and what can be achieved in specialist facilities, primarily located on nuclear-licensed sites. This will represent a significant step change for the UK in innovative nuclear research, and a key development platform for the expert nuclear workforce of the future.
