Areva signs agreement with university nuclear research center

Areva said it has signed a collaboration agreement with the Dalton Nuclear Institute, the University of Manchester’s center for nuclear research and education.

As a first step, Areva is to sponsor two PhDs in Materials research. This will be followed by other collaboration and participation in a pan-European network of academic nuclear research. The doctorates will involve studies in France, Manchester and also in West Cumbria where the university has established the Dalton Cumbrian Facility.

The Dalton Nuclear Institute provides the focus for Manchester’s capabilities across the full range of nuclear science, engineering, policy and business. The Institute’s new Dalton Cumbrian Facility (DCF) will deliver research and transfer new knowledge and capability to industry with a specific focus on radiation science and engineering decommissioning.
