Business School academic awarded British Academy grant to research nuclear power industry

Dr Tony Dobbins, Senior Lecturer in Human Resource Management at Bangor Business School, has been awarded a grant of £9769 by the British Academy/Leverhulme Trust to examine anticipatory responses to closure and redundancy in Welsh nuclear power plants, including Wylfa on Anglesey.

The central research contribution is to improve understanding, and inform policy, on the transition through, and impact of, nuclear power plant decommissioning, closure and redundancy (from the perspectives of multiple stakeholders) in outlying regional labour markets like North West Wales in a climate of economic uncertainty.
