Cambridge Nuclear Energy Centre

A cross-discipline collaboration

Department A-Z



On the 9th January 2014, David Willets (Minister of State for Universities & Science) announced the Government’s funding of a further 19 EPSRC Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs). CNEC members collaborating with Imperial College London and The Open University have secured funding for a joint CDT in Nuclear Energy that will train approximately 60 PhDs in Nuclear Energy over the next 8 years (5 cohorts beginning from 2014 – 2018). This is a new Nuclear CDT and complements the existing Nuclear CDT led by the University of Manchester, which was also renewed in the current round. Thus, it represents a significant increase in training capacity for Nuclear PhDs in the UK.
