Contract opportunities

With our partners from industry and academia we believe we can solve some of the biggest global engineering challenges.

Fusion can’t be achieved by working alone. The UK needs an innovation pipeline from academia right through to the supply chain, to deliver real-world remote handling solutions for fusion energy and beyond. 

We work closely with academia and industry to deliver our fusion goals and maximise the economic and scientific benefit.

You can find key upcoming contract opportunities at the following portals.
