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.

Federal government awards research budget of 100 million euros
The die is cast. The nuclear research centre SCK CEN will research small, modular reactors of the future – in cooperation with (inter)national partners. To this end, it will receive a budget of 100 million euros from the Federal government. “With its unrivalled nuclear expertise, SCK CEN will lead Belgium towards sustainable nuclear energy,” said Prime Minister Alexander De Croo in his speech. He delivered this speech at the celebration of SCK CEN's 70th anniversary. The nuclear research centre is thus resuming its original mission.

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.
