Game Changers: Working across sectors to advance nuclear decommissioning
Tuesday 7th July 2020
Frank Allison is Managing Director of FIS360 LtdGame Changers is an innovation programme focussed on identifying and developing cutting-edge technologies that may deliver significant advances in nuclear decommissioning. Solutions which offer the potential to be developed for the nuclear arena can be found in relatively low TRL research projects as well as established technologies already used in other industry sectors. This presentation will explain the Game Changers process, illustrate how cross sector collaboration has enhanced the Game Changers programme and provide examples which demonstrate how Game Changers supports the transfer of technology into nuclear decommissioning.
