Belgian Nuclear Society
Dear BNS Members, BNS-YG Members, Dear Visitors,
In order to encourage young people to enter the fascinating world of nuclear science, the BNS organizes – under the impulse of the Young Generation since 2004 – a Scientific Contest. Over the past years, its scope has been broadened, so that today not only Master Theses, but also scientific or technical papers written by young nuclear (in its broader sense, at least for the “nuclear” part of this) engineers or scientists are accepted.
14 manuscripts were received this year. The oral and poster competition will take place on the occasion of the BNS (YG) Evening Lecture of February 25, 2016. So, book the date in your agenda!
Roger Schène, Chairman of the Belgian Nuclear Society
The Fukushima accident and its multiple consequences created a significant and renewed interest among the population to better understand nuclear sciences and applications, their associated risks and their potential future developments. Our mission at the BNS is to try to give you access to a set of information as complete and as diversified as possible about various aspects of peaceful applications of Nuclear Energy.
We are willing to provide detailed relevant scientific information for nuclear specialists from Belgium industries, universities and research centers but also to the public including schools, teachers, researchers which have their own question marks about nuclear applications and nuclear sciences in general. As you know, nuclear sciences are very broad and include already many applications as well as many ongoing developments full of hope for many medical domains. Nuclear sciences include obviously but are not limited to design, construction and operation of nuclear plants.
The Belgian Nuclear Society has an important role to play today: from expressing thoughts to writing papers and organizing lectures and conferences. Our monthly Evening Lectures contribute to create a dialogue between experts and the public. This allows for having a direct contact with some of our best nuclear Belgian experts and raising the questions you might have. You will find more information on the upcoming Evening Lectures in the Activities section of our website.
Thank you for your visit and do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions related to nuclear sciences.
