The UK’s Nuclear Security Culture Programme (NSCP) works internationally to strengthen the security of nuclear materials and other sensitive assets, reducing the possibility of nuclear terrorism and other risks.
It delivers activities focused on strengthening the human factor within nuclear security systems by producing and disseminating new research, education and training activities and providing direct support for new security initiatives launched within government and industry.
Established in 2014 as a new strand of the UK’s Global Nuclear Security Programme (GNSP), the NSCP is managed by the Department of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and has been implemented by King’s College London since its inception. The programme is delivered in an academia-industry consortium with KCL working closely with Nuclear Transport Solutions and Amport Risk Ltd. International activities are developed with local partners and tailored for different audiences.
External Advisory Board: Katherine Holt, National Nuclear Security Administration , Derek Lacey, Committee on Radioactive Waste Management, and Marco Marzo, Brazilian-Argentine Agency for Accounting and Control of Nuclear Material.
