SCK•CEN becomes member of a new association for R&D promotion
NUGENIA, a new European association for the stimulation of research and development, was launched in Brussels on March 20, 2012.
The major stakeholders from industry, research, safety organisations and universities join their forces within NUGENIA. Also SCK•CEN participates in this initiative to support safe, reliable and competitive nuclear power plants.
Through more co-operation and better co-ordination, NUGENIA aims to put the scientific and technical expertise to optimal use for research and development focused on reactors of the 2nd and 3rd generation.
NUGENIA already counts 50 members from 17 countries. The acronym stands for "Nuclear GENeration II & III Association".
