Towards Optimized Use of Research Reactors in Europe

Project description

Securing a future role for non-power reactors

Europe has a broad and very diverse landscape of nuclear research reactors (RRs). These are non-power nuclear reactors that serve as a neutron source, and they are used for research and training, materials testing and the production of radioisotopes for medicine. Many of these RRs have been in operation 30-50 years. While maintenance and regular upgrading has been necessary, financial pressure has resulted in the closure of many RRs. The EU-funded TOURR project will investigate the decreasing number of RRs. It will identify future needs and design a roadmap for the upgrading of existing RRs. The project’s overall goal is to evaluate related needs, develop tools to optimise the RRs, and raise awareness amongst decision-makers about their future role in European research and development.
