Research Centre Řež

General description


Research Centre Řež (CVŘ) is a research organisation with the main aim of research, development and innovations in the field of power generation (especially nuclear). CVŘ owns a unique research infrastructure such as experimental research reactors LVR-15 and LR-0 and technological experimental circuits. Significant modernization of the infrastructure was realized within years 2012-2017 due to the implementation of the SUSEN project (in the framework of the Operational Programme Research and Development for Innovations of the European Regional Development Fund). The core activities of CVŘ involve fundamental and applied research on experimental research reactors LVR-15 and LR-0. Other activities are arising from the participation of CVŘ in the international Jules Horowitz Reactor project. No less important are national and international research projects.
