Industrial Strategy and the productivity challenge in nuclear

20 April, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm UTC+0

Industrial Strategy and the productivity challenge in nuclear

A construction sector-led response

Objectives

Our aim is a hard-working day to:

  • learn about the latest policies and strategies on industrial strategy and productivity in the sector, and how they will impact on clients and supply chains;
  • understand and produce a report on the productivity challenge in the construction sector of nuclear; and
  • develop a future collaborative work programme to address this challenge.

The conference will feature a follow-up event later in the year to be hosted by EDF NNB at their facility near Hinckley Point.

Invited audience

This is a highly participative event. We are targeting an attendance of 60 committed people by invitation only, from industry clients/vendors and their construction/engineering supply chains, plus government, academics, and representatives of third-party organisations such as professional institutions and trade associations.
