The Budapest Research Reactor is a tank type, light water moderated and cooled, Russian (Soviet) type research reactor. It became critically in 1959. BRR had two major reconstructions; at the first one the reactor power was increased from 2 to 10 MW, while the second one was a full scale reconstruction (1986-1992), all construction parts were replaced and several safety innovations were introduced. From 1993 the average yearly operation time is 3500 hours. BRR as a high flux neutron source has been utilized for basic and applied research and it has satisfied real research demand. The cold neutron source installed in 2000 significantly extends the scientific use of the research reactor. Currently, 14 neutron facilities are operated around the research reactor. The Budapest Neutron Centre was founded to enhance the scientific use of the BRR.
