In the context of the General Conference, Secretary of State De Crem also seizes the opportunity to promote the MYRRHA-project of the Belgian Nuclear Research Center. Belgium is one of the most innovative countries in the world and plays a pioneering role with the MYRRHA-project in the development of innovative, safe, and sustainable nuclear technology. As the Special Envoy of the Belgian Federal Government, Pieter De Crem his focus is on finding foreign partners to work with the Belgian Nuclear Research Center in the further development of this prototype of a nuclear reactor powered by a particle accelerator. The recent decision of the Belgian Government to invest 558 million euros in this project is therefore an important stimulus for foreign investors and will certainly increase the interest in entry into this very promising project.
