Upon the initiative of the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre SCK CEN, the Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO) and the Fonds de la Recherche Scientifique-FNRS (F.R.S.-FNRS) grant the SCK CEN Chair “Roger Van Geen” to an eminent researcher in the domain of nuclear sciences and applications. The 2023 laureate is Edmond Sterpin. He is professor in medical physics, associated to both KU Leuven and UCLouvain. “Being awarded alongside prestigious laureates is a strong motivation to pursue my research efforts even further”, says a visibly touched Edmond Sterpin.
