The UK PONI Papers

The issues surrounding nuclear weapons and energy are complex and multifaceted, and successive generations will be called upon to understand and manage them. Stakeholders from industry, the military, government and academia must collectively foster the emergence of the next generation of nuclear experts and build a broad knowledge base, from technical intricacies to international security dynamics. 

UK PONI aims to promote this next generation of nuclear expertise by establishing a forum where emerging and established specialists can exchange knowledge and develop fresh thinking on a range of contemporary nuclear issues. Each year, it invites emerging experts to present their research and ideas to an audience of established members of the UK nuclear community at the UK PONI Annual Conference.
