SEESLiverpool welcomes our guests from University of Tsukuba for two days of tours, seminars and laboratory training. We will visit Seascale, Dalton Cumbrian Facility and NNL Workington in Cumbria, before hosting a meeting of academics and NNL staff to discuss possible collaboration opportunities in the area of nuclear risk communication and public perceptions of nuclear science and engineering.
Day 1 – Field visit to Cumbria Energy Coast
We departed Liverpool bright and early for a long but interesting day touring West Cumbria. We visited Seascale beach to discuss the environmental monitoring programmes that operate around Sellafield, which loomed in the background beyond the dunes.
We were then hosted by the Dalton Cumbrian Facility and NNL Workington for two interesting tours of these world-class specialist nuclear science and engineering facilities.
