The Institute of Nuclear and New Energy Technology of Tsinghua University (INET), as the largest education institute of nuclear science in P.R. China, operates three research reactors. How to broaden the utilization of our RRs is the challenge we have to face. In this article, current utilization status of the swimming pool reactor will be introduced. The feasibility of developing the RRs into training center and the advantages of High Temperature Gas-Cooled Reactor (HTR-10) for nuclear hydrogen production will be put forward.
