Abstract Research collaboration with China Institute of Atomic Energy. This was initiated by a research secondment funded by IAEA and supported by the British Council, which involved a research fellow being seconded to our group in The University of Sheffield (Department of Materials Science) for 12 months to develop skills and expertise in experimental studies of radioactive waste glass dissolution. (2011-2012) A joint paper on the results is currently being drafted for submission to a good quality peer reviewed journal.
