DISTINCTIVE is a multi-disciplinary collaboration of 10 universities and 3 key industry partners from across the UK’s civil nuclear sector.
Dr. Claire Corkhill, Vice Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of Sheffield (and a DIAMOND Alumni).
The 3rd ARF call was announced in February 2016. All proposals were judged at a Management Board meeting that was held on Monday 18th April.
At the time of submitting a proposal to the EPSRC, a number of PDRA projects indicated a potential need for active research facilities; however, a detailed understanding of facility needs and the duration of work was unable to be defined. As a result, an Active Research Fund (ARF) was requested.
DISTINCTIVE’s Dr Tom Scott (University of Bristol) and his colleague, Dr Ollie Payton, are in the semi-final stages of the ‘Drones for Life’ competition – the prize for the winner is $1M!
