About Us

The research organisation Centrum výzkumu Řež (CVŘ) was founded on 9th October 2002 as 100% daughter company of ÚJV Řež, a. s. (NRI – Nuclear Research Institute).

The main aim of the research organisation is research, development and innovations in the field of power generation (especially nuclear). CVŘ owns unique research infrastructure such as experimental research reactors LVR-15 and LR-0 and technological experimental circuits. Significant modernization of the infrastructure is being realized within years 2012-2017 due to realization of the SUSEN project (realized in the framework of the Operational Programme Research and Development for Innovations of the European Regional Development Fund).

As of december 31st, 2016 the company CVŘ had a total of 303 employees.

The core activities of CVŘ involve fundamental and applied research on experimental research reactors LVR-15 and LR-0. Another activities are arising from the participation of CVŘ in the international Jules Horowitz Reactor project. No less important are national and international projects (especially FP7 projects).

CVŘ is a member of the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) and since 2010 represents the Czech Republic in the EERA managing body – Executive Committee, thereby participating in the realization of the Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan). CVR is also a member (and co-founder) of the Technology Platform ‘Sustainable Energy CR’.
