A Multipurpose Research Reactor is used to produce radioisotopes for medicine and irradiate materials for the development of fission and fusion reactors, among other applications. These particles are primarily used in areas such as industry, medicine, agriculture, forensics, biology, chemistry and geochronology and educational research. 

They are small in comparison with power reactors whose primary function is to produce electricity. 

The meeting is expected to continue till  Wednesday 26th October, 2022.
