What is CEBE

CEBE (Spanish Scientists in Belgium, for its acronym in Spanish) is a non-profit organization created by Spanish researchers for researchers in general or anyone interested in science. Our objective is to create and consolidate a communication channel, in which our ideas, opinions and needs as a scientific community can be heard.
