Research on High Temperature Reactors (HTR) have been conducted around the world for a few dozen years. Even if several concepts/solutions have been proposed during that period (with bigger or smaller success), possible solutions have by no means been fully explored. The HTR-in-Poland project is rather complex and some questions concerning reactor concept itself and the research methodology to be followed to find answers to these questions should be asked. Research objectives should be clearly defined for both simulation and experimental works. Outcomes of those works should allow to fully assess merits of HTRs in Poland, and to identify the necessary research efforts, financial outlays, and civilizational leap of the country.
