Abstract The UK National Nuclear User Facility initiative explores opportunities for new investment in active handing and analysis facilities in support of rebuilding the national capabilities for nuclear research. The NNUF Working Group contains members from Manchester, Lancaster, Leeds, Edinburgh, Sheffield and Oxford Universities, the National Nuclear Laboratories (NNL) and Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE), EPSRC, BIS, DECC and Imperial College. The focus of the work of NNUF over the period of the grant will be on planning the most effective deployment of funds released by the government for the improvement of the UK's nuclear research facilities, including making these facilities available to the widest possible user base. The grant provides support costs for the work of the NNUF Working Group. This includes some administrative support, and travel funding for the working group to attend meetings in the UK and to make a limited number of visits to international nuclear facilities to see how they are operated to encourage a wide external user base
