Why Build a Research Reactor
It is almost impossible to think of a nation that have developed nuclear energy without first
Building a research reactor Developing the needed qualified Human Resources Nuclear Knowledge Infrastructure

Another step towards establishing a nuclear power program in Jordan

Nuclear Research Reactor
The research and test reactor would serve as an integral part of the nuclear technology infrastructure It will become the focal point for a Nuclear Science and Technology Center (NSTC) Play the primary role in educating and training the upcoming generations of nuclear engineers and scientists Provide irradiation services in support of the Jordanian industrial, agricultural and health/medical infrastructure
