Realisation of a new large research infrastructure in Belgium: MYRRHA


Last Friday, the Belgian federal government announced “the realization of a new large research infrastructure in Belgium: MYRRHA” (Multi-purpose hYbrid Research Reactor for High-tech Applications). Over the course of the last twenty years, the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre, SCK•CEN, has been actively working on designing and building this new multifunctional research installation. It is the very first prototype of a nuclear reactor driven by a particle accelerator in the world.
