The theme for ENYGF2017 was “Nuclear Innovation: a Rich Heritage and Our Bright Future”. The timing and theme of this event perfectly coincided with the research undertaken by Ernest Rutherford, the father of nuclear physics, 100 years ago at the University of Manchester. The work of Rutherford and his contemporaries represents some of the most significant scientific advancements in the field of nuclear physics to date, which provided the understanding that enabled scientists to induce nuclear fission and give birth to the nuclear industry. ENYGF2017 was the perfect opportunity to present and discuss the UK’s rich nuclear expertise as well as looking to the future of the global industry and offers an unrivaled platform on which to showcase the nuclear industry’s skills.
