The main aim of the research organisation is research, development and innovations in the field of power generation (especially nuclear). CV REZ 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 January 1st, 2016 the company CV REZ had a total of 330 employees.
The core activities of CV REZ involve fundamental and applied research on experimental research reactors LVR-15 and LR-0.

No less important are national and international projects (especially H2020 projects). CV REZ 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).
