The National Nuclear User Facility for Hot Robotics (NNUF-HR) is an EPSRC funded programme. It assists UK academia and industry to deliver ground-breaking, impactful research into the use of robotics and AI  in extreme environments, by providing opportunities to access cutting-edge equipment and expertise.

The aim of the NNUF-HR is to support the UK ambition for more cost-effective decommissioning, nuclear new-build, advanced modular fission reactors and future fusion powerplants. It will be based across four locations:

  • UKAEA’s RACE
  • University of Bristol, Fenswood
  • National Nuclear Laboratory, Workington
  • University of Manchester, Dalton Cumbria

Users will be able to book both space and equipment, at one of the four sites, or hire equipment for use in their own facilities. To find out more, watch NNUF-HR’s new video.
