New research reactor is approved by the Dutch government

Dutch govt approves new medical isotope reactor:
wow that is incredible... wish such decision was/will be made to replace NRU! All the reasons why such investment is a critical investment to maintain and expand Canada's position in nuclear research and technology including neutron scattering are clearly and visibly there, why such decision is still lacking doesn't make any sense... Good for the Dutch! see also: 
"Nuclear Research & Consultancy Group (NRG) director Rob Stol is reportedly "delighted" with the support from the Cabinet and North Holland province. “The building of PALLAS and the investment in the Higher Education Reactor in Delft are superb reinforcements to the Netherlands’ nuclear knowledge infrastructure. ... NRG, and thus the Netherlands, has an extremely strong position in the world market for medical isotopes and nuclear technology research. With the coming of PALLAS, we will be able to maintain and expand this position.""
