Game Changers is an innovation programme that identifies and develops cutting-edge technologies that could provide significant advances in nuclear science and engineering.
The programme is delivered by the National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) and FIS360, specialists in supporting innovative technologies from concept through to commercial production.
How the programme works
Challenges are open to anyone from any sector who can offer a viable solution, from SMEs to universities and large corporate organisations. Solutions could be found in technologies already used in other sectors such as oil and gas or bio-engineering which could be developed for the nuclear arena. Ideas are submitted through a very simple application process.
Funding in two phases supports the development of ideas and concepts with feasibility and proof of concept grants available. Successful applicants are supported by the Game Changers team to ensure their ideas are best developed to meet Sellafield and NNL needs and, where possible, to optimise the chance of full implementation across nuclear sites.
If you’d like to know more about Game Changers and current challenges, or if you have a technology you think might be useful to Sellafield, please get in touch.
