CBEK FNRS contact group

The CBEK (Centre Belge d’Etudes Kartstologiques) is a FNRS contact Group created in 1978.   Its aim is to enable contacts between Belgian and non-Belgian specialists as geologists, hydrogeologists, geophysicists, archeologists, …  , belonging to the scientific domain that concerns all karstic environments.  Karstic studies are part of the FNRS Physics, Chemistry, Geophysics and Earth science group.

Since more than 20 years, the CBEK supports the “Speleological Scientific Days” that bring together a minimum of 100 participants of different nationalities.

Prof. (UNamur, ILEE), member of CBEK, is also a member of the "Géoparc Famenne-Ardenne", which has recently become a UNESCO Global Geoparc.  Read more...
