NuFor - Nuclear Forensics

Nuclear Forensics directly supports national nuclear security and is reliant upon access to expertise from across the nuclear industry, academia and beyond. Many people from a diverse range of disciplines have experience and knowledge that could be invaluable to Nuclear Forensics, which by sharing will help support this exciting and important scientific field.

NuFor (Nuclear Forensics) is a 3-day conference aiming to bring together experts from academia, industry, and government to share developments in the field of Nuclear Forensics to a wider audience. The conference aims to highlight the role nuclear forensics plays in underpinning sovereign security and the opportunities that exist for those entering into the STEM education pipeline, as well as promoting the exchange of information and good practice between those already involved in nuclear forensics and other specialists who could provide wider value to the Nuclear Forensics community.

The objectives for NuFor are:

  • Showcase research and new advances across academia and industry
  • Discuss the technical challenges in the field
  • Demonstrate the applications of fundamental science in Nuclear Forensics
  • Enhance the UK skill base and career pathways in Nuclear Forensics
  • Provide a networking opportunity for technical specialists across different disciplines

As part of celebrations for our 5th anniversary conference, NuFor 2023 will be featuring two days of talks from leading nuclear industry speakers, along with a conference poster session and a third ‘showcase’ day of talks focusing on cutting edge research being carried out in the field of nuclear forensics.
