This publication is a revision of IAEA TECDOC 1212 which primarily focused on enhancing the utilization of existing research reactors. This updated version also provides guidance on how to develop and implement a strategic plan for a new research reactor project and will be of particular interest for organizations which are preparing a feasibility study to establish such a new facility. This publication will enable managers to determine more accurately the actual and potential capabilities of an existing reactor or the intended purpose and type of a new facility. At the same time management will be able to match these capabilities to stakeholders users needs and establish the strategy of meeting such needs. In addition several annexes are presented including some examples as clarification to the main text and ready to use templates as assistance to the team drafting a strategic plan.
