A £25 million Centre for Nuclear Energy Technology (C-NET) is to be established at the University of Manchester to supply graduates to support the nuclear industry and undertake independent academic research. The university said it would make a "substantial" investment in the centre to be based at its Dalton Nuclear Institute. Funding is also being sought from the Northwest Regional Development Agency.
