Research Infrastructure

Jules Horowitz Materials Testing Reactor

Description Materials Testing Reactors (MTRs) are necessary for development and qualification of materials and nuclear fuel used in nuclear industry. The related studies contribute to safety and optimization of existing or upcoming nuclear power reactors and to development of future reactors. JHR will also be used for nuclear medicine. It will supply hospitals with short-lived radioisotopes used for medical imaging or therapeutic purposes. JHR-MTR is a project on the ESFRI Roadmap of Research Infrastructures (RIs) of pan-European interest.
