Research in nuclear sciences: impact on the citizen
The Belgian Nuclear Society, in association with SCK•CEN, the Institute for Radioelements (IRE), and the JRC, is organising a conference on nuclear sciences in physics and medical applications. Registration is now open for this event, which is intended for experts from universities, research organisations, public bodies and the European Commission. The conference will take place at the JRC Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements (IRMM) in Geel, Belgium.
The main purpose of the conference is to promote nuclear science and innovation and to demonstrate its impact on new technologies and health in Belgium and at international level. The programme addresses research in nuclear sciences, and with its applications in nuclear physics (neutron data measurements at JRC-IRMM), and for the production of radio-isotopes for medical application (production reactor at SCK•CEN and targets processing at IRE).
