Welcome to the Research Reactor Information Hub!

The International Atomic Energy Agency's Research Reactor Section (RRS) works within the Department of Nuclear Energy to increase the capability of interested Member States for planning, building, utilizing and maintaining research reactors.

Using this site as just one of our tools, we strive to equip Member States with the most pertinent, up-to-date information about their research reactor projects and share the work we do in the RRS so that Member States might benefit.
