Why we are here

Bangor University's proximity to the new Wylfa and Trawsfynydd sites, both earmarked for new nuclear projects, places it in an ideal position to develop world leading capability in Nuclear Research. With growing interest in new Small Modular Reactor/Advanced Modular Reactor technologies, and ambitions to see the Trawsfynydd site in the south of Gwynedd as a location for their early deployment, the university is well placed to support this potential development.

The University has secured a substantial funding award from the Welsh Government's Sêr Cymru programme in September 2017 (aimed at attracting international research stars to Wales), to build a world-class research team in Bangor University under the leadership of highly acclaimed Prof. Bill Lee. This will see a step-change in the University's capacity and capability to engage with the nuclear research agenda.
