The Advanced Fuel Cycle Programme (AFCP) is part of the BEIS £505m Energy Innovation Programme. AFCP is led in partnership with the National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL).
NNL, working with the Game Changers innovation programme, used konfer to promote a research funding opportunity. This research relates to coated particle fuels, a prospective advanced nuclear fuel technology that has the potential to accelerate transition to a ‘net zero’ carbon emission future.
Through konfer, funding was offered to support feasibility and proof of concept projects to a research team at University of Sheffield.
