About CTN – Tecnológico e Nuclear Campus

Located in Loures, CTN – Tecnológico e Nuclear Campus is one of the most important technology parks across the country, namely in areas related to nuclear sciences, as well as in the field of radiological protection and nuclear safety.

This new campus results from the transition of the extinguished Instituto Tecnológico e Nuclear, I.P. to Instituto Superior Técnico, and houses the Portuguese Research Reactor and the Radiological Protection and Safety Unit.

CTN aims to promote and develop science and technology research, advanced training, professional specialisation and also to provide scientific and technical advice and support to the Portuguese Government, in the fields of nuclear safety and radiological protection, and in areas involving applications of ionizing radiations and radioisotopes.
