In 2021, more than ever before, SCK CEN joined forces with partners across the world to stimulate groundbreaking progress in society. It can be compared to two co-pilots. Two partners who merge their expertise and trust each other implicitly to get projects off the ground.
Anchoring growth through partnership
We know from experience that we can only anchor growth through partnership. If you want to produce groundbreaking social miracles, you need a co-pilot – a partner who shares a vision, but has mastery of a different professional discipline. In short: two partners, two specialisms, one goal and the explicit will to share.
And our will to share is great. We concluded numerous partnerships in 2021. This annual report brings together all these invaluable partnerships and introduces you to our precious co-pilots.

SCK CEN has a lot of knowledge. In order to make the most of that knowledge, we are reaching out to both research institutions and industry.
Heading to the future
SCK CEN was founded in the 1950s to study the applications of nuclear energy, but since then we have expanded our knowledge to a wide range of research fields, each of them with a strong future-orientated and international focus. MYRRHA, NURA and RECUMO are the largest projects of SCK CEN, and it is through these projects that the research centre intends to make a significant difference in the near and further future. High time then, according to annual ‘tradition’, to check on the status of these projects.
