Building on world-leading modelling and experimental capabilities the research performed in the ICO (Imperial Cambridge Open universities, pronounced ECO) nuclear energy CDT will enable future reactors to be developed, new reactors to be built and operated more safely and current reactors to operate for longer. At the same time ICO research will support the clean-up and decommissioning of the UK's contaminated nuclear sites and moves towards Geological Disposal in the UK and World-wide. ICO research aims to place the UK at the forefront of international programmes on future reactors for electricity and civil marine power. By doing so it will provide highly skilled and trained cohorts of PhDs with a global vision and international outlook for the UK nuclear industry, regulators, government and academia.
