Scientific Contest 2020
This year, the BNS-YG joins forces with the Belgian Nuclear Research Center SCK•CEN and the Belgian Agency for Radioactive Waste and Enriched Fissile Materials ONDRAF/NIRAS to offer to the young generation a renewed Nuclear Scientific Contest.
Awards will be granted by these 3 institutions for the best original works related to nuclear science in its broadest sense, whether it is a Master thesis, a PhD work or a scientific paper.
The Scientific Contest aims to encourage and reward young scientists or engineers in the nuclear field with money prizes following an oral competition and a poster session. The prizes for this edition will amount to more than 5500 € in total.
For more information, please take a look at the official announcement of the joint event.
