The Canadian Government has agreed a $30 million (£19m) funding deal with the University of Saskatchewan to support nuclear research, development and innovation. The Government will fund the Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation (CCNI) to build expertise in issues and inform policies on nuclear technologies.

Canadian Minister for Innovation Rob Norris said: “The Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation is a key cornerstone of Saskatchewan’s innovation and nuclear agendas. It will play a vital role in advancing our vision for a safe, responsible, value-added nuclear agenda that focuses on nuclear medicine, material science, safety and small reactor technology.”
