Research for SUSEN (R4S)

The submitted project focuses on basic research performed on the SUSEN research infrastructure during the project’s sustainability period, which is from 1 January 2016 to 31 December 2020 (December 2022?).

Research with multiple applicable results will be financed for SUSEN sustainability through research contracts as well as in projects belonging to programmes of the Technology Agency of the CR, the Ministry of the Interior, and the Ministry of Industry and Trade. The project includes four research programs: Technological experimental circuits (TEO), Structural and system diagnostics (SSD), Nuclear Fuel Cycle (JPC), Material Research (MAT).


The main goal of the R4S project is the sustainability of SUSEN, a large research infrastructure project built using structural funds. The main goal will be achieved through research of behaviour of materials and components in regular as well as extreme conditions and media, the behaviour of these media, and determining mutual relationships between composition, structural characteristics, and surface properties of materials, including modelling the properties of entirely new materials, on newly-built infrastructure under conditions of extreme temperatures, environments, and stresses
