Abstract Both India and the UK have a long history with nuclear power, following different paths, but still facing similar challenges going forward. As part of helping address these challenges, the UK and India initiated a nuclear collaboration, which since 2010 has funded 26 projects to great success. This network builds upon this success through provision of seed funding for initiation of new collaborations, widen participation, fund joint workshops, secondments, and knowledge exchange between participants. This network is intended to develop the programme further helping it realise its full potential
