Ray Chegwin

Knowledge Transfer Manager - Nuclear

I am 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 the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) on the Nuclear Innovation Programme (NIP).

I work across all aspects of the sector with organisations such as Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, Sellafield, Magnox, LLW Repository, RWM, EDF Energy and also Advanced Nuclear Technologies (AMRs, SMRs) and the Fusion Energy sector (UKAEA). I also help to run the Digital Special Interest Group (SIG) on behalf of The Nuclear Institute and regularly run ‘nuclear challenges’ on Business Connect’s Innovation Exchange.

Get in touch if you’re already working in the nuclear sector and want links to innovative technologies; maybe from a different sector. I can also help 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.

I work 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 I can provide links to information, end users and other key players and networks in the nuclear sector.

I also work with colleagues on the Innovation Exchange programme, supporting innovation transfer by matching industry challenges to innovative companies from other sectors.
