Atoms For Peace

For the last two years, Medact has parterned with the Nuclear Information Service on the 'Atoms for Peace' project: a ground-breaking investigation into links between the Atomic Weapons Establishment – where the UK's nuclear weapons are designed and made – and British universities.

Our study has found that more than fifty universities – over one third of all British universities – have received funding from the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE), with AWE's 'Technical Outreach' programme with universities mainly supporting scientific research in the physics, materials science, high performance computing, modelling, and manufacturing disciplines.

If you work or study in a university and could raise awareness about the report or help us find out more about the issues it raises at your university, please contact office@medact.org.

The report will be launched at an event on at 5.30pm on 12th February at University College London. We will be sending out a reminder of this event closer to the time.
