Capacity for Ideas

LR-0 reactor operational time offer

The research organisation Centrum výzkumu Řež (CVŘ) has operated, since 2011, one of the largest infrastructures for research, development and innovation in Czech Republic – Experimental nuclear reactors LVR-15 a LR-0. In accordance with its aims of support, CVŘ provides an open access to the use of the infrastructure for scientific and research purposes. In addition to the above-mentioned conditions and motivated principally by a wish to strengthen co-operation with universities, CVŘ offers the capacity of the LR-0 nuclear reactor for the realization of exceptional individual experimental programs by Czech university students or student teams.

The total annual capacity on offer amounts to 6 weeks of operating time free of charge (with full support of reactor operational staff), where one project accounts for 1 – 3 weeks of reactor time. For professional consultation relating to the project, it is possible to use selected CVŘ specialists for up to 10 hours per project. Within the framework of the project, one project representative can be sponsored to attend a conference in Europe or in the USA, at which the results of the project can be presented.

„Capacity for ideas ” calls are published by the Research Centre Řež twice a year.
Both calls – spring and autumn – have their own terms of deadlines, which are published on this page.

Allocation of reactor capacity to submitted projects will be decided by an experts committee on the basis of:

  • originality of project
  • benefits to the discipline
  • feasibility in relation to capacity required
  • application potential of project
