The main aim of the research organisation is research, development and innovations in the field of power generation (especially nuclear). CVR owns unique research infrastructure such as experimental research reactorsLVR-15 and LR-0 and technological experimental circuits. Significant modernization of the infrastructure is being realized within years 2011-2015 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, 2014 the company CVR had a total of 246 employees. The core activities of CVR involve fundamental and applied research on experimental research reactors LVR-15 and LR-0.
