Sustaining nuclear knowledge through SCK•CEN's Academy for Nuclear Science and Technology

    Research outputpeer-review


    With the intention to better coordinate and strengthen the education and training activities fostered by SCK•CEN during the past years, our research centre launches in 2012 the Academy for Nuclear Science and Technology. Within the Academy, 60 years of expertise and experience gained from our different research projects is collected. In order to maintain and extend a competent workforce in nuclear industry, medical, research, and governmental organisation, and to transfer this nuclear knowledge to the next generations, the Academy acts in the following four domains: (i) Guidance for young researchers, (ii) Organisation of academic courses and customized training for professionals (iii) Policy support regarding education and training in nuclear domains and (iv) Research on transdisciplinary aspects of education and training. This presentation will highlight the mission of the Academy and will show how cooperation with several stakeholders like universities and industry, also at international level, facilitates and improves the obtained results.
