The primary objective of the TOURR project is to develop a strategy for Research Reactors (RRs) in Europe and prepare the ground for its implementation.
The ambition of TOURR project is to secure access and availability of RRs as a vital part of the European Research Area and to support a stable supply of medical radioisotopes.
This platform aims to provide information about the use of RRs in terms of science and technology, medical applications (including production of radionuclides) and education and training activities.
The goal is to coordinate the ‘offer’ with the ‘request’ on all these aspects, with information gathered on the same online tool.
The platform includes the identification of available infrastructures, characterization of these same infrastructures as well as a continuously updated overview of the available capacities and corresponding
abilities of the participating RR operators..
An easy contact between potential users and reactor operators is also provided.
Research reactors operators can interact with their potential users to match resources with needs.
The ultimate goal of this platform shall allow for enhanced and potential new utilization of the RR; create a pool of resources resulting in cost reduction in case of similar needs, avoiding duplications of efforts to enhance scientific excellence.
