The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has promoted and fostered exchange of scientific and technical information on research reactors for many years.

An important mechanism for this exchange has been the periodic meetings, seminars, symposia and conferences organized by the IAEA. In recent years, the Agency has organized major international conferences on topics of interest to the research reactor community every four years.

This year, the IAEA is organizing the International Conference on Research Reactors: Achievements, Experience and the Way to a Sustainable Future, which will be hosted by the Government of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan through the Jordan Atomic Energy Commission (JAEC).


The objective of the Conference is to foster exchange of information on operating and planned research reactors. It is a forum in which reactor operators, managers, users, regulators, designers and suppliers can share experience in all relevant areas including safety, security, operation, fuel front and back-end options, utilization, infrastructure and capacity building, and management, and showcase how achievements and experience attained with research reactors in these areas, contribute to a sustainable future.

Information about format and topics, as well as the registration and participation details, are available online. Please, visit the International Conference on Research Reactors Official Website.
