  • SCK CEN - Crisisbeheersing (2019)

    Guaranteeing radiation protection

    You cannot see it, smell it, taste it or feel it, and yet radiation can have a major impact on our health. From measurements with drones to the close monitoring of astronauts, the protection of humans and the environment from ionising radiation is always our primary concern.
