This year’s conference will be held online this year, and focuses around ‘Implementing Digital Innovation in a Nuclear Environment’.

Scheduled across two half-days, Thursday 15th October and Wednesday 21st October, the Nuclear Institute’s Digital Special Interest Group are busy finalising an engaging and topical event programme which builds on the highly successful conference held in London last November.

Bringing nuclear professionals from across the nuclear lifecycle together with digital experts and technology providers, the Conference, which is been held virtually this year, will consider the latest insights on the practical application of cutting edge digital technology and techniques in support of decommissioning, operations, new-build and research in a highly regulated environment.

It also aims to provide both practical advice and inspiration to enable delegates to improve digital utilisation and adoption now and in their future operations wherever they sit across the nuclear lifecycle.
