More About Us.

As the UK’s national fusion lab, the UK Atomic Energy Authority’s mission is to lead the commercial development of fusion power and related technology and position the UK as a leader in sustainable fusion energy. We are meeting the scientific and engineering challenges that come with such a grand ambition.

UKAEA is made up of four main facilities: Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE), Remote Applications in Challenging Environments (RACE), Materials Research Facility (MRF), and - in partnership with STFC - the Oxfordshire Advanced Skills (OAS) apprentice training centre.

As part of CCFE, we operate the world’s largest fusion device – the Joint European Torus, or JET – on behalf of the European fusion consortium EUROfusion.
Connect with us to hear more about our world-class research and career opportunities and to discuss commercial opportunities.
