NERC HOME ABOUT RESOURCES OPPORTUNITIES PEOPLE NEWS SER HOME
SER is focused on academics, outreach and research to yield energy-driven economic
development for Wyoming. The Nuclear Energy Research Center is focused on interdisciplinary nuclear-energy capacity building across UW, and dedicated
to developing collaborative relationships both external and internal to UW focused
on nuclear energy research.
Given that increased deployment of nuclear energy faces both technical and non-technical
challenges, NERC focuses on both the social sciences and the hard sciences to help
futher energy solutions.
NERC seeks to connect members of the UW community and beyond in social science fields
that will help advance the emerging nuclear energy market and tackle important issues
related to economics, social license, law/regulatory policy, communication, anthropology, etc.
NERC promotes researchers dedicated to improving efficient and effective nuclear technology
in the fields of chemistry, chemical engineering, material science, mechanical engineering, physics,
computer sciences, electrical engineering, geology, etc.
