FUSION Spring 2024

Welcome to the spring edition of FUSION!

Call For Presentations: UK PONI Annual Conference 2024

Deadline: 10 May 2024

The call for proposals to present at the UK PONI Annual Conference 2024 is currently open!

Selected candidates will receive support from RUSI experts, who will help them refine their ideas and research. They will have the opportunity to present their work to a broad audience, receive feedback on their research from a diverse field of experts in the nuclear community and build connections with representatives from across the nuclear enterprise.

We encourage proposals that address this year’s designated topics from a wide range of viewpoints, including both technical and policy perspectives.

Applications from budding professionals and students of nuclear issues are welcome, and in fact, encouraged! We are actively seeking presentation proposals from graduate students, emerging technical specialists, and other early career professionals, including those with military experience. UK PONI is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment, and we thus warmly welcome applications from women, persons with disabilities, and underrepresented minorities.

If you are thinking about applying and would like to learn more, check out the recordings from last year’s panels and reach out to ukponi@rusi.org in case of questions – we’ll be happy to help you!
