The Belgian Nuclear Research Centre conducts high-level fundamental and applied research in various domains. The research activities are concentrated into 3 scientific institutes:

1. Institute for Nuclear Materials Science - development and assessment of new and existing materials for their suitability in nuclear applications. The research realises the scientific (physical, chemical, phenomenological) and technical (experimental, empirical) follow-up and prediction of reliable functioning of the materials in their given working conditions.
2. Institute for Advanced Nuclear Systems - research on the development and the testing of technologies and instrumentation for new reactors. New nuclear measuring techniques, reactor modelling and reactor safety are also examined. These competences are aimed at the realisation of an innovative research installation.
3. Institute for Environment, Health and Safety - focus on potential effects of ionising radiation on our health and the environment and study the behaviour and the impact of radioactive materials in air, geosphere and biosphere. Radiation protection, decommissioning and waste disposal are the main pillars. This institute also pays attention to services, safeguards and policy support, and examines the integration of social and ethical aspects in nuclear applications.

The marine research mainly focuses on the effects of the Fukushima nuclear accident on marine biota.
