[en] Research reactors are an important resource for training nuclear professionals worldwide, but only around a quarter of countries have their own research reactors. To help ensure that students and nuclear professionals can get the education and training they need, whether their country has a research reactor or not, the IAEA supports international training courses, both on-the-ground and remotely, as well as facilitates collaboration between countries to increase access to research reactors. A research reactor is a nuclear reactor that, instead of generating power, is primarily used to produce neutrons. Although research reactors are mainly used for research and applications, they also play a major part in the education and training of budding and established professionals who work in nuclear facilities, radiation protection and nuclear regulation.
