Abstract: An international workshop, funded by the JRC¿s Enlargement and Integration Action, took place in Prague in 2005 entitled ¿Requirements for BNCT at a Nuclear Research Reactor¿. The intention of the workshop was to exchange knowledge between the EU BNCT programme at the HFR Petten (EC, NL) and other existing clinical and preclinical research programmes on BNCT throughout Europe, with the special aim to transfer information towards groups and places that are preparing their own national BNCT projects. The future of nuclear research institutes will depend on their ability to open research programmes into new areas and to link nuclear technologies with other applications. Medicine is one of the most interesting but also sensitive areas for such multidisciplinary work. Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT) is a dedicated and well-known topic that demonstrates such a link in an exemplary way. This book expands on some of the topics presented at the workshop. It is intended to support scientists, clinicians and politicians that are interested to develop a local or national BNCT activity.
