from the IAEA’s Research Reactor
Database (RRDB) provides information with respect to the status of the world’s
year the IAEA sends out
questionnaires to the owners and operators of research reactors requesting an
update on information relating to each facility. This information is fed into
the IAEA’s database and comprises
the Research Reactor Database (RRDB).
research reactor web site also contains a calendar of research
reactor meetings and activities. Previous conference: 11/2003 in Santiago de Chile.
Amongst the publications: "Safety Aspects of Cold Neutron Sources" by J.M. Astruc and K.H. Gobrecht.
Conference on Research Reactor Utilization: see
IAEA’s "SUBPROGRAMME ON RESEARCH REACTORS:
TECHNOLOGY AND NON-PROLIFERATION" talk given at IGORR2007 in Lyon by
P. Adelfang, et al., you can read :
Project D.2.0.2: Supporting RR Modernization and Innovation
States, especially developing Member States, involved in planning or carrying
out refurbishment and modernization of RRs often look to the IAEA
for advice and assistance and to exchange information and ideas. Similarly, IAEA
assistance is requested when new RRs or major
innovative systems, such as in-core loops or cold sources, are
being planned or constructed. Regional and interregional thematic
collaborations, networking and centres of excellence are being increasingly
considered worldwide as an appropriate way to enhance utilization of RRs. This
project is designed to fulfil these needs by collecting and sharing relevant
information, including best practices and lessons learned.
Two important safety guides have been published earlier by IAEA:
"SAFETY GUIDE ON SAFETY ASSESSMENT OF RESEARCH
REACTORS AND PREPARATION OF THE SAFETY ANALYSIS REPORT"
(Safety Series 35-G1)
GUIDE ON SAFETY IN THE UTILIZATION AND MODIFICATION OF RESEARCH
(Safety Series 35-G2)
