CEPN – Nuclear Protection Evaluation Center – is a non-profit organization created in 1976. The research areas are directed towards the principles and methods for radiological risk assessment and management, the optimization of radiological protection in nuclear facilities, the management of existing exposure situations and post-accident situations.

The studies are undertaken by a group of a dozen of engineers and economists. The research programme is evaluated by a Scientific Council.
