Research Facilities

The Czech Technical University in Prague is one of the largest research institutions not only in the Czech Republic but all over the world. We cover a broad range of research in many fields
of engineering. 

This site introduces a short cross-section of the research facilities at CTU, most of which collaborate closely with national and international research institutes, and also with the private sector.

Centre for Effective and Sustainable Transport Infrastructure (CESTI)

Focused on technical innovations aimed at eliminating deficiencies in today’s transport infrastructure.

Project Manager: Prof. Alena Kohoutková (

Artificial Intelligence Center (AIC) 

Foundational research in artificial intelligence, multiagent systems, game theory, automated planning, robotics and cybersecurity applied research translated into building large scale systems and technology transfer by contracted research and building startups.

Director: Michal Pěchouček (

Centre for Applied Cybernetics (CAC)

The center works on basic, applied and industrial research in the field of cybernetics, and on subsequent industrial implementations. The Centre makes use of the existing infrastructure and the experience accumulated throughout the years. However, its strategic research agenda is more focused and shifted towards the needs of the industry.

Manager: Prof. Vladimír Kučera (

Advanced Technologies for Heat and Electricity Production

Focused on applying the latest knowledge in the field of heating, characteristics of fuels, the efficiency of equipment, reducing self-consumption and optimization of distribution networks.+

Project Manager: Prof. Jiří Nožička (

Research Center of Manufacturing Technology (RCMT)

Single robots have limited manufacturing capabilities because they have less accuracy and stiffness than machine tools. This can be significantly improved by cooperation between two or more robots, where several concepts from mechanics, mechatronics, and control are combined.

Project Manager: Petr Kolář Ph.D. (

Training Reactor VR-1

The training reactor VR-1 is a light water, zero power research reactor with enriched uranium. Its design satisfies the requirement of easy accessibility to the reactor core with respect to education students and training qualified staff for nuclear industry. 

Head of Department: Ľubomír Sklenka Ph.D. (

Klokner Institute

Provides expert services for the state administration and for private clients in the field of national and international standardization in civil engineering. The Institute plays a key role in developing international collaboration in R&D.

Head od Department: Jiří Kolísko Ph.D. (

Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics, and Cybernetics

CIIRC will build on the successful tradition of cybernetics and informatics teams at CTU and will support long-term specific research collaboration with leading global companies and with Czech businesses.

Director: Prof. Vladimír Mařík (
