Exploring a better tomorrow
We explore. Driven by our passion for science. Boosted by our unique infrastructure. We sound out the frontiers. We expand our knowledge in various nuclear areas. However many horizons we may explore, we always pursue the same objective: developing innovative applications for society. Why do we strive for this objective? Because we are convinced that, with one of the smallest elements on earth, the atom, we can make the biggest difference for society. Both now and in the future.
In the picture
On 16 November, you will hear the alarms go off at SCK CEN. On that day, SCK CEN is holding a biennial emergency planning drill with the federal government services in the morning.
The exercise is a collaboration with the Government's National Crisis Centre (NCCN). We will be testing our emergency procedures and the operation between the Emergency Room and the NCCN's Evaluation Unit.
During the exercise, disruption will be limited to the sound of the alarms.

From cancer research to the impact of radioactivity on the body: SCK CEN’s research knows no boundaries.
SCK CEN is working on many applications to protect people and the environment, now and in a distant future, against ionising radiation.
Any research conducted by SCK CEN has a social added value, but society is also the very subject of one specific research field.
Thanks to its knowledge in material aging, SCK CEN accurately predicts how materials (will) behave in a nuclear reactor.
SCK CEN boosts innovation in nuclear technology in various ways.
Safety is our priority, radiation protection our keyword. SCK CEN measures, monitors and analyses.
