Highlights in a nutshell
Breaking patterns by ...
... rethinking operations.
On the one hand, we have no choice but to achieve our goals in these coronavirus times, on the other hand, we take the initiative to proactively improve our operations.
... expanding production, research methods and existing partnerships.
This expansion leaves room for progress towards more personalised medicine, more efficient cancer treatment and better understanding of radiation effects.
BR2 produces record quantities of medical radioisotopes
More than 12 million patients have been helped thanks to this production.
Lutetium-177: towards personalised medicine
IRE and SCK CEN conclude a partnership for the production of lutetium-177 and other radioisotopes.
From pain relief to cancer treatment
SCK CEN conducts research on samarium-153 as a theranostic radioisotope.
SCK CEN grows miniature brains
Miniature brains may lead to increased understanding of the effects of radiation.
... starting from a different perspective.
When putting on new glasses, you see another reality. A better reality. One that thoroughly tests the safety of nuclear innovations, that provides innovations to end-users and that reduces the volume of waste.

SCK CEN installation puts fuel rods to the test.
SCK CEN adds a new dimension to nuclear research
Impactful science is shaped by, and for, people.
New approach streamlines decommissioning process
3D model maps radioactivity more accurately.
... introducing new technologies.
These technologies are still in their design or construction phase. Once they are up and running, they will make a world of difference. In the fight against cancer, in the management of nuclear waste, etc.
