    As the mean age of the existing fleet of currently operating European materials testing reactors approaches fifty years, the need for a new facility, to ensure continuity and provide the necessary support to the nuclear power plant community and nuclear industry becomes paramount. The Jules Horowitz Reactor, aims to fill this gap and respond to the ever-increasing industry needs. The Jules Horowitz Reactor is currently under construction at the CEA Cadarache research center and its first criticality should be reached during the mid-2020’s. In this paper, the JHR experimental capabilities at start-up along with the Finnish in-kind contributions to the JHR will be briefly described.
