Siting implications of nuclear energy

Our new paper outlines the key actions needed to deliver a responsible nuclear sector in the UK's net zero future.

Welcome to the Dalton Nuclear Institute

We bring together the skills and expertise of the nuclear research community at The University of Manchester, the most advanced nuclear research capability in UK academia.

We create opportunities to grow the scale, scope and quality of the University’s nuclear activities, support development of distinctive features in Manchester’s nuclear research capability, and foster interdisciplinary collaboration.

We nurture strategic partnerships with academia, industry, regulators, and government, and engage with the wider public through school activities, community outreach and the media.
