Research reactors have often more than research functions, they are used for education and training, material testing and modification, and for the production of radioisotopes for medical and industrial applications. Like nuclear power reactors, research reactors are required to adhere to the highest safety standards. The 5MW Jordan Research and Training Reactor (JRTR) is the latest of this kind. It was built on the campus of the Jordan University for Science and Technology and received the operation license on 12 November 2017.
