Nuclear Science Contest 2024

To reward young people that entered the fascinating world of nuclear science, the BNS – with the help of its Young Generation, the Belgian Nuclear Research Center SCK CEN and the Belgian Agency for Radioactive Waste and Enriched Fissile Materials ONDRAF/NIRAS – organizes since 2004 a yearly contest for outstanding works related to nuclear applications in the broadest sense of the term.

This Nuclear Science Event is open not only for students to present their Master thesis but also to anyone (up to 36 years old included) who published a paper related to nuclear, whether it is at school, university or within a company. Candidates can choose to participate in one of the  categories listed above.

The BNS-YG Scientific Contest of 2024 will be organised on 26th of November and will take place at Tabloo (Gravenstraat 3, 2480 Dessel). During the contest, the winners of each category will be given the opportunity to present their work and receive their price. The contest will be followed by a reception.

The rules of the competition can be found here.
