In April 2014 a workshop was held to discuss the Hinkley Point C contract, with a focus on the legal and constitutional issues posed by the contract and the related regulatory framework then being proposed. The findings from the first workshop generated a considerable amount of press discussion and reaction from stakeholders including UK ministers and EU Commission officials.

Since April 2014, the European Commission granted the project state aid clearance, but with additional financial requirements from the lead firm EDF. 

The aim of the workshop is to bring together a group of around 15-20 academics and researchers with policy makers including MPs, civil servants and regulators, to consider the most important issues now posed by the Hinkley Point C contract. 

This workshop is supported by the ESRC Impact Acceleration Account.
