In financial year 2011-12 the UK provided £297,000 to the World Institute for Nuclear Security (WINS). This supported a range of activities that have helped further UK interests and objectives on international nuclear security, including our commitments to the nuclear security summits in Washington (2010) and Seoul (2012). These include the publication of a comprehensive series of best practice guides, a series of specialist nuclear security workshops and the development of an international network of international WINS nuclear security academies. We have also facilitated co-operation between WINS and the UK's domestic skills provider, the National Skills Academy Nuclear (NSAN).
