The UK and China have jointly committed £50M to the Centre over a five year period.

The Centre will be established and run jointly by NNL and the China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) and will incorporate projects on a number of different areas of work across the whole nuclear fuel cycle.

The JRIC will act as a portal to allow UK companies and academic organisations and their Chinese counterparts to work together on areas of mutual benefit and will support the development of Subject Matter Experts and others with higher level skill in both countries.
