The Belgian Nuclear Research Centre, SCK•CEN, is a foundation of public utility. With laboratories in Mol and a registered office in Brussels, it is one of the largest research centres in Belgium. About 700 people work on the development of peaceful applications of ionising radiation. Our statutory mission prioritizes important societal issues: the safety of nuclear installations, solutions for radioactive waste disposal, radiation protection, sustainable development and education. In order to perform its research programme, to provide services to industry, the medical sector, government and third parties, and for training purposes, SCK•CEN operates several nuclear facilities.
