>>>>>>>>>>>> Here <<<<<<<<<<<<<

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.

This year the event includes two contests:

  • BNS-YG Scientific Contest ;
  • SCK CEN Best Master Thesis Contest.

The winners of the contests will present their work on a long-awaited physical event on the 24th of March, 2022 at the Tabloo communication center, that will also be open to visitors before and after the event itself.

Program of the event: 

See the poster above. During the walking dinner the participants will enjoy a poster session in the entrance hall of Tabloo.

Prizes from the 2020 edition.
