This paper presents a conceptual proposal for the design and construction of an irradiation research facility at the CRCN (Regional Center of Nuclear Sciences) site, in cooperation with an international partner. The planned irradiation facility is based on a multipurpose research reactor with an innovative design feature, which is a core with two sub-critical parts coupled by a heavy water tank for enhancing and flatten the thermal fluxes, improving safety, and improving beam applications.
