The BWR Research Hub is a joint venture between Bangor University and Imperial College London with support from Hitachi-GE and the Welsh Assembly Government. The purpose of the BWR Research Hub is to enable the academic and industrial communities of Wales and the wider UK to deepen and enhance their understanding of BWR technology, and participate in research and development relating to this and future generation of BWRs.
The objectives of the hub include creating and developing nuclear research capacity in Wales alongside a publically-accessible education in current and future BWR technologies. It also aims to facilitate knowledge transfer of BWR technology from Japan to Wales and the wider UK and enhance collaborations in relation to this technology.
