2020 Conference Outputs



This online conference took place on Thursday 16 July 2020. Conference talks and Q&A were held between:  11:00 - 13:00 BST (UK Time). Optional workshops: 14:00 - 15:00 BST and 15:30 - 16:30 BST.

The conference was free of charge to attend, due to the financial support of our event sponsors: Accenture, EDF Energy, Sellafield Ltd and UK Atomic Energy Authority.

Over 400 delegates joined the livestream of the conference talks. The engaged audience submitted a lot of questions during the event and there was insufficient time to answer them all. The team is currently working through the submitted questions and responses will be shared over the next few weeks on this website and via our Diversity and Inclusion in UK Nuclear social media feeds.
