Using the Game Changers process, these challenges will be funded by NNL as part of our open innovation agenda to collaborate and work with external partners. The chosen strategic areas are:
- Technologies to scale thermochemical methods of hydrogen production
Applications are invited for innovations that could overcome the barriers to scaling commercial deployment of thermochemical methods of hydrogen production from water.
Health and Nuclear Medicine
- Flexible method of production for thin film targets used in nuclear physics and nuclear medicine experiments
Proposals are invited for innovative processes or methods to put down thin, metal-based films onto a low atomic mass backing material in a flexible and reproducible manner.
Security and Non-Proliferation
- Stand-off alpha radiation detection under daylight conditions
In collaboration with the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE), NNL are seeking solutions that could enable the remote detection and identification of radiologically hazardous sources of alpha radiation.
Find detailed information on NNL’s Focus Areas, including Environmental Restoration in the Strategic Plan which launched in July 2021.
Challenge webinars for each will be held during the week commencing 1 November, providing further technical information and an opportunity to meet the challenge owners.
Applications close on Thursday, 18 November….Read more
