Exploring a better tomorrow
We are constantly exploring. And have been since 1952. Driven by our passion for nuclear technology and empowered by our unique infrastructure. SCK CEN explores the limits of the possible. In this way, we continuously expand our knowledge in various nuclear fields. But no matter how many directions we explore, we always have the same goal in mind: developing innovative nuclear applications for a better world. Why? Because we are convinced that we can make a gigantic difference with one of the smallest elements on Earth – the atom. Both now and in the future. For people and nature. Read on and you will discover exactly how we do it.
