This publication summarizes the past and present of TRIGA research reactors, and addresses potential challenges in the near future. As the staff of TRIGA facilities retire, there is an urgent need to capture their knowledge. This publication covers the historical development and basic characteristics, utilization, fuel conversion and ageing management of TRIGA research reactors. The CD-ROM accompanying this publication includes 22 individual
papers, describing operational TRIGA facilities worldwide, reporting on their status, key research results, issues and challenges they are facing as well as future plans.
