The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) has awarded contracts worth £12 million to support research projects over the next four years. The projects will attempt to find “innovative solutions to technical challenges” – focusing on areas such as waste management, site decommissioning, spent fuels and nuclear materials. The Direct Research Portfolio (DRP) contracts were granted to a series of consortia made up of corporations, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), research institutes and universities. The more than 70 organisations involved include the University of Cambridge and the National Nuclear Laboratory as well as around 20 SMEs.
