Ray is responsible for facilitating technological collaborations between industry and research in support of the nuclear energy sector. This involves close support to Innovate UK on various competitions and BEIS on the Nuclear Innovation Programme (NIP).  He works across all aspects of the sector with organisations such as Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), Sellafield Ltd, Magnox Ltd, LLW Repository Ltd, RWM Ltd, EDF Energy and also Advanced Nuclear Technologies (AMRs, SMRs) and the Fusion Energy sector (UKAEA).  Ray also helps to run for Digital Special Interest Group (SIG) on behalf of The Nuclear Institute and regularly runs ‘nuclear challenges’ on KTN-iX.

Contact Ray if you’re already working in the nuclear sector and want links to innovative technologies; maybe from a different sector.  Also, organisations who have little or no knowledge of the nuclear sector and want to understand the key drivers, programmes and opportunities to apply their innovative technologies.

Ray works with industry and academia to help drive innovation across the nuclear sector.  Many of these organisations work in other sectors (other Energy sectors, Space, Defence, Transport & Built Environment) and Ray can provide links to information, end users and other key players and networks in the nuclear sector.

Ray works with colleagues on the KTN innovation exchange (KTN-iX) programme, supporting innovation transfer by matching industry challenges to innovative companies from other sectors.
