Summary: The intent of this submission is to apprise the Panel of the University Network of Excellence in Nuclear Engineering (known as UNENE) of its well established and successful model for industry – academia partnership and to discuss the possibility of increased federal funding, through NSERC, to a higher than current level. UNENE/NSERC is a $2.8M/yr research program equally shared between both organizations. Should such increase is deemed possible by the Panel a call to industry through UNENE Board of Directors will be made seeking matching industrial funding. This will increase the R&D base within universities; increase the level of knowledge and innovation that can be also leveraged to other industries such as medical, aerospace, material sciences and others.
