Following on from the success of previous NuSec funded Summer Student pilot projects, applications are being sought for Summer 2021 pilot projects from UK universities, companies or government laboratories researchers.
Projects must be from the Natural Sciences and show the potential to enhance the field of nuclear security.
Projects could involve the development of an early research idea, a small proof of concept or a feasibility study undertaken by an Undergraduate or Post Graduate and supervised by a Univeristy Academic or Industrial Scientist.
Applications are welcomed from collaborations between UK Universities, companies or government laboratories and must be submitted by Midday 26th April 2021.
Funding is available for 5 Summer Pilot Projects Up to a maximum of £4,000 each

UK-US Academic Network in Nuclear Security and Non-Proliferation Skills
The NuSec Science Network are launching a new UK-US Academic Network in Nuclear Security and Non-Proliferation Skills in Partnership with the NNSA ETI, MTV and NSSC consortia.

NuSec will offer grants to support mobility and training activities to develop collaboration between UK and US researchers working in nuclear security and non-proliferation technologies.

NuSec-NNSA collaboration grants are available to UK researchers wishing to collaborate with the NNSA consortia on the following activities:-

• Short term postdoctoral research projects (up to 3 months), up to £15,000
• Undergraduate student interns/summer research projects, up to £2,000
• Research visits, up to £5,000
• Conferences, training and collaboration visits, up to £2,000.

A workshop will be held on 27-28 April 2021 to formally launch the call for UK applications and provide opportunities for US and UK researchers to connect. The main objective of the workshop will be to showcase the current research in nuclear security and non-proliferation from the UK and from the three NNSA consortia. The program will consist of invited presentations from UK and US researchers, and will include an overview of research activities carried out in the NNSA consortia.

The workshop will be run as a Zoom meeting over 2 consecutive afternoons 3-6.45pm (UK time). Attendance at both afternoon sessions is advised and workshop pre-registration is required.
