Areva set to collaborate with Dalton Nuclear Institute

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

As a first step, Areva is to sponsor two PhDs in materials research. This will be followed by other collaborations 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 with experimental capabilities for radiation science research.
