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
The Belgian nuclear research centre, SCK CEN, and the Belgian aeronautical specialist, Sabca, have developed an innovative technology that enables drones to be used to carry out radiological measurements. The measuring equipment was officially attached to the drone on Tuesday 18 May 2021, in the presence of the Minister of the Interior, Annelies Verlinden. "Innovative projects with the aim of improving the protection of the population, the environment and collaborators have my full support,” said Minister Annelies Verlinden.

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.
