As a national physical society, and member of the European Physical Society, our goal is to promote physics and support physicists. For this purpose, we organise a range of activities and membership benefits.
On these pages you will find information about membership, and about the BPS general meeting. Also archived issued of B-Phy, our electronic magazine, can be downloaded, and there is a job section for those of you seeking employment.
Are you active in the nuclear or radiological sector?
Or are you professionally confronted with ionising radiation?
The postgraduate course Radiation Protection Expert is just what you need.
This training course provides a broad -scientific and technological- view on radiological and nuclear techniques in their dimension, and is conform the requisites of the Royal Decree of 20 July 2001 for the 'Qualified expert in health physics' (art. 73.2).
The postgraduate course Radiation Protection expert is a collaboration between Universiteit Hasselt School of Expert Education (UHasselt SEE), the Nuclear Technological Centre NuTeC (UHasselt) and the SCKâ€¢CEN Academy for Nuclear Science and Technology. A parallel training track is organised in French by IRE and ISIB.

Ben Van Duppen from University Antwerp, a former winner of the BPS Young Speaker Contest, is the 2017 laureate of the Flemish "PhD Cup". Congratulations to him !
See an interesting video of Ben explaining his work on the website of De Morgen.
Fusion researchers at MIT's Plasma Science and Fusion Center (PSFC), along with colleagues in Belgium and the UK, have created a new method of heating fusion plasmas in tokamaks. The new method has resulted in raising trace amounts of ions to megaelectronvolt (MeV) energiesâ€”an order of magnitude greater than previously achieved.
