The event aims to disseminate information on progress from initial phases of parts of the wider £180 million BEIS investment through the NIP and promote opportunities for the next phase of the Advanced Manufacturing and Materials (AMM) Programme.
Phase 2A participants for the AMM programmes – as part of the wider NIP will disseminate findings from their work through presentations. This is to ensure that information is shared with the wider industry in order to promote fairness and transparency for potential suppliers and collaborators that wish to bid into the next phase of work.
The event will also promote grant call for the AMM Phase 2B (Advanced Manufacturing and Construction) programme – followed by Q&A sessions. The wider AMM Phase 2 programme forms part of the Government commitment under the Nuclear Sector Deal. Through this Phase 2B call, Government will provide up to £10 million to demonstrate advanced manufacturing and construction techniques through development and use of a demonstrator. These phases of work are for a duration of one year.
Stakeholders at the event will also be invited to engage in a brokering and networking event to stimulate discussions about potential collaborations for the next phases of work.
