Milestone 1: Ready To Make A Knowledgeable Commitment To A Research Reactor Project
During the Phase 1, the Member State completed the Pre-Project Assessment and Preliminary Strategic Plan and determined that there are scientific, industrial or medicinal needs that may justify the construction of a research reactor. However, before embarking upon the research reactor project, the Member State must develop a comprehensive understanding of the obligations and commitments involved, and ensure that there is a long-term national strategy and resources available to discharge them. This work will culminate in the attainment of Milestone 1 and the production of the Feasibility Report which demonstrates that the Member State is in a position to make an informed decision whether to proceed with the research reactor project. The Feasibility Report will incorporate and update the Pre-Project Assessment and Preliminary Strategic Plan and integrate these with the analysis of the obligations, commitments and resources required.
