Nuclear Forum Background

The Nuclear Forum is managed by a Steering Group which represents all supply chain tiers in the nuclear industry.

Following the organisation of a successful Supply Chain Conference and Exhibition for the Nuclear Industry at Birchwood in 2011, there was general consensus to relaunch the Nuclear Forum as a membership based organisation. The Nuclear Forum is operated by the Birchwood Forum, the business development network established in 1996.

The Nuclear Forum is managed by a Steering Group which represents all supply chain tiers in the nuclear industry. Together they agree the programme of meetings and activities of the Forum and business development support for members.

The new membership year starts on 1 April and businesses are requested to complete a subscription renewal form.
