Following their indispensable role in the qualification of materials for fission nuclear systems, research reactors can provide numerous services for fusion research until the construction of dedicated fusion testing facilities, and afterwards to support complementary research related to fusion materials research, related nuclear data measurements and additional material qualification. Research reactors of all designs and power ratings can contribute in the advancement of fusion research, therefore this field promises enhanced research reactor utilization as well as long term cooperation with academia and the fusion community. This publication details the role of research reactors in fusion research from fundamental studies to collaborative efforts by fission and fusion communities. Focusing on materials science and engineering, within the larger scheme of fusion energy development, the publication then proceeds through the stages of testing and qualification. It also includes conclusions regarding the future of fusion research, synergy between fission and fusion technologies, and the views on past and ongoing efforts.
