PhD Student Timothy Crump wins award from Spark 2016

Congratulations to our PhD student Timothy Crump, who has won the prestigious award for Environment and Sustainability as part of the Spark 2016 competition.

Timothy receives (r) his award, with his collaborator Philippe Martinuzzi

The main aim of this competition is to foster an Franco-British community of energy in order to bring a pool of young talent closer to the nuclear industry. Timothy (from the School of MACE) and Philippe (studying in France) successfully progressed through to the final via workshop in the British Embassy in Paris and subsequently went on to win the Azoar Engineering environmental prize. The chosen topic was:

“For nuclear energy in Europe, being socially adaptable is the MOST significant challenge envisaged for 2040. We demonstrate that this is achievable with current technology with emphasis on an Anglo-Franco joint venture through modularity, diversity and most importantly closing the fuel cycle once and for all! ”

The prize was presented by Jean-Bernard Lévy, the CEO and Chairman of EDF Energy, at the World Nuclear Exhibition in Paris and is a fantastic example of what can be achieved through academic and industrial collaboration.
