INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Gatekeepers to the UK’s Nuclear Knowledge

INS is the agent for UK Nuclear Decommissioning Authority’s intellectual property (IP). That’s  60 years of fuel cycle and decommissioning challenges, 60 years of successes and 60 years of lessons learned.

IP – solving your nuclear challenges

The UK Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) has responsibility for 17 nuclear sites in the UK, some dating back to the 1940s, including Sellafield, Dounreay and the Magnox reactor sites. As well as being responsible for decommissioning and cleaning-up these facilities, the NDA owns all of the associated intellectual property developed across all of those sites.

Unlocking decades of British-born technology

Intellectual property exists in a variety of forms across the NDA estate. At each of the sites there is a collected wealth of research and development, know how, test results, practical experience and documented evidence which can be tapped into and exploited to meet new nuclear challenges.

INS is the commercial arm of the NDA and provides commercial services related to the exploitation of this intellectual property. We are in the unique position of being able to provide access to the operators at these sites and provide insight to the knowledge and experience gained in some of the most challenging nuclear environments.
