The New Nuclear Manufacturing (NNUMAN) programme


The £8m New Nuclear Manufacturing (NNUMAN) programme, part-funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), was launched in October 2012 to develop R&D capabilities to support a robust UK manufacturing supply chain for civil nuclear power to meet UK and global energy needs well into the future. The programme, led by The University of Manchester with support from the University of Sheffield, focusses on the scientific underpinning of advanced manufacturing for the next generation of power stations.
