IAEA’s Internet Reactor Laboratory expands access to training

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) established its Internet Reactor Laboratory (IRL), with the help of Dr. Hawari’s Nuclear Reactor program (NRP), as a means to provide practical reactor operating experience to member states that do not have a research reactor.

The IRL project is a cost-effective way to educate groups of students in research reactor physics, and can assist states in educating the human capital needed for ensuing nuclear undertakings. This provides access to a virtual research reactor that countries otherwise might not have.
