The TRANSCEND team took to the road in December and January to raise awareness of the project amongst the nuclear community. The 1st Industry Roadshow was held at Birchwood Park in Warrington on 11th December 2018 and the 2nd at The Mercure in Bristol on 14th January 2019. Nearly 90 delegates registered from organisations across the nuclear sector to attend the roadshows. They came to gain an overview of the research programme and to learn how it will help to address key challenges facing the industry.
The days started with Mike Fairweather (PI of TRANSCEND) giving a general outline of the project. Academic Theme leaders then presented further information on the research being carried out within their themes. Finally it was the turn for the industry partners to speak about their involvement in the consortium. Both days provided fruitful exchanges between the academics leading the research and the industry stakeholders.
Presentations from the roadshows will be available on the website shortly.
