The Institute of Nuclear Research (INR) Řež is a member of the APIS project consortium, which is developing alternative nuclear fuel for VVER water-water power reactors.

The Institute will contribute mainly in the areas of reactor physics, evaluation of fuel design under design basis accident conditions and development of advanced fuel technologies with enhanced accident tolerance (ATF). The Westinghouse-led programme was supported by the European Commission in the EURATOM call. It also aims to unify the approach of fuel deployment in EU countries and Ukraine according to the highest nuclear safety standards.
