Exposure to ionising radiation is not risk free. One of SCK•CEN’s main objectives is to protect humans and the environment against the damaging effects of ionising radiation, now and in the future. To this end we make our expertise available to governments, the medical establishment and industry. When developing nuclear applications, we also focus on the impact of radiation on humans and the environment.

Our unique knowledge about radiation protection is reflected in numerous fields:
