Organisation profile

The Dalton Nuclear Institute is the umbrella organisation for nuclear activity at Manchester, spanning three faculties to co-ordinate the most advanced nuclear research capability in UK academia.

Manchester’s exceptional nuclear research community holds a diverse and extensive expertise that makes us unique in UK academia: we are the only UK university to cover the full nuclear fuel cycle, as well as fusion power, health and social research.

The Dalton Nuclear Institute brings this community together, provides access to some of the most extensive and advanced nuclear research facilities in Europe, including our own Dalton Cumbrian Facility, and acts as an authoritative, trusted source of information, contributing to important national and international conversations around nuclear energy.

We have a strong track record of supplying skilled capability and resource across nuclear in academia, supply chain and government. We coordinate nuclear education across School and Department boundaries and are home to the GREEN (Growing skills for Reliable Economic Energy from Nuclear) Centre for Doctoral Training.

We work to strengthen and grow our partnerships across the sector, collaborating strategically with Sellafield Ltd., Jacobs, the National Nuclear Laboratory and the UK Atomic Energy Authority, among others. We are a founding partner of the North West Nuclear Arc and host the Nuclear Waste Services Research Support Office.
