The BR1 reactor located at the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre SCK•CEN in Mol, Belgium, is a research reactor with a variety of irradiation possibilities. Thanks to its large reactor core, its flexible operation and its different irradiation facilities, this reactor is particularly suited for in-core and ex-core neutron physics experiments. This paper starts with a general description of the BR1 reactor, giving special emphasis to the available irradiation possibilities. Then a brief overview of some distinguishing fission experiments that have been performed in the past will be given. Finally two ongoing experimental campaigns related to fission will be presented.
