Anglo-French seminar on nuclear skills

29 June 2018

Prospect was part of a UK delegation taking part in a special Anglo-French seminar in Paris in early May exploring how the two countries can collaborate and share knowledge on nuclear skills development.

The two-day event was attended by more than 40 participants from a range of organisations across the nuclear industry as well as academia and government.
The seminar, led by the UK Nuclear Skills Strategy Group and France’s Institut National des Sciences et Techniques Nucléaires, aimed:

  • to accelerate the UK’s and France’s nuclear skills agendas
  • to fully establish the shared skills synergies between France and UK
  • to create focus areas for progress and action
  • to build on existing and establish future collaborations on nuclear skills between UK and French skills organisations.

Prospect, represented by senior deputy general secretary, Sue Ferns, was the only trade union present. The event was held at the British Ambassador’s residence in the French capital. The seminar will reconvene in November in London to report on progress.
