Abstract: As a nuclear energy user, the Czech Republic needs a number of nuclear specialists for the operation of Nuclear Power Plants (NPPs) and the Research and Development (R&D) of new nuclear devices. They are educated in few technical universities and the educational institutions of industrial companies. A main role is played in nuclear education by the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University (CTU) in Prague, which operates the VR-1 training reactor. The Czech Nuclear Education Network (CENEN) was established for better cooperation, preservation and further development of higher nuclear education and expertise.
