Profile
The University of Manchester (UoM) is an internationally recognized institution with a reputation for pioneering research. The University engages in internationally significant research in a wide range of subjects. One recent evidence of the strong research environment of UoM is that the Noble Prize in Physics 2010 was awarded jointly to Professor Andre Geim and Konstantin in the field of graphene. Energy research and teaching is carried out at UoM across a wide range of areas centered on the themes of renewable energy resources, production, transportation and consumption. Linking these themes are the areas of energy policy, economics and societal impact.

Next generation of nuclear robots will go where none have gone before

The cost of cleaning up the UK's existing nuclear facilities has been estimated to be between £95 billion and £219 billion over the next 120 years or so. The harsh conditions within these facilities means that human access is highly restricted and much of the work will need to be completed by robots.
