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.


Registration for the BNS-YG Scientific Contest is mandatory for both the audience and the candidates, and will be closed 1 week prior to the event.

For those who wish to present their work, applications must be submitted to before October 5, 2020.
The application rules of the Scientific Contest and the eligibility conditions for ONDRAF/NIRAS awards are available here. Selected participants will receive a confirmation email with additional information.
