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.
30.04.2020 - Forest fires have been reported since 3 April in the restricted and contaminated zone around Chernobyl. Our researchers, in collaboration with the Belgian Royal Meteorological Institute (RMI), previously reported detailed analyses of the situation in Europe. That is when we underlined that the population should not worry about possible health risks. The fires lasted a long time, so we provide an update of our analyses.

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.
