Continuing Education

The SCB Center for Continuing Education (CCE) organizes continuing education (programs, conferences, seminars, presentations) which is "problem oriented", "demand driven", "scientifically based" and "didactically innovative". This is in principally done in an interdisciplinary way and with a focus on social sciences and humanities aspects. Where necessary and opportune, natural sciences and biomedical expertise is included. Tailor-made education is the goal.

The SCB CCE activities do not lead to a bachelor, master or PhD degree. Participation and evaluation is rewarded with a SCB CCE certificate (of attendance, participation, evaluation).

SCB Center for Research

The SCB Center for Research (CR) performs (inter)disciplinary research on environmental, energy, climate change and health & safety issues. This is done at the initiative of SCB Fellows and/or at the request of public or private parties.

The research done is presented at SCB launch events, seminars or conferences, and published in the SCB Opinion Papers.

Mediation

The SCB Center for Mediation & Dispute Resolution (CMDR) aims to promote mediation and other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques in environmental, energy, climate change and health & safety matters. It incorporates the activities of the Flemish Association for Guidance & Mediation in Complex Investment Projects, as set up in 2010 by Kurt Deketelaere and Dirk Henckens, and is open to European and international ADR developments.

Advisory Services

The SCB Center for Advisory Services (CAS) offers legal and multidisciplinary advice and support to governments (local, national, European, international), profit and non-profit organizations in environmental, energy, climate change and health & safety matters. This is done in a scientific and impartial way. The SCB CAS also acts as a "second opinion" deliverer for law and consultancy firms.
