NNL agrees on an action plan with CNL

24 March 2020

The UK’s National Nuclear Laboratory has further strengthened its links with Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) by developing an Action Plan under an existing Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). The Action Plan is specifically designed to boost collaboration across the areas of clean energy, medical isotopes, waste management and decommissioning. The agreement will address shared challenges between the UK and Canada in relation to climate change, public health, and environmental stewardship. 

Under the terms of the agreement, NNL and CNL will work in partnership to explore and pursue joint research projects and studies, information exchange workshops and other resource and knowledge-sharing opportunities. Both parties have identified research related to advance nuclear reactor fuel, targeted alpha therapy and medical isotope production and environmental remediation practices and technologies as key areas that both Laboratory’s intend to pursue in partnership.
