The observation of the Reactor Antineutrino Anomaly, at the beginning of this decade, has revived the interest in short-baseline experiments that probe the disappearance of electron antineutrinos. In addition, the recent evidence for a distortion in the reactor antineutrino energy spectrum, seen by some of those short-baseline experiments, has questioned our current models even more. The SoLid experiment is a reactor neutrino experiment, located at the BR2 reactor site of the SCK · CEN in

The first phase of SoLid has reached one year of data taking and the experiment will soon be able to present some initial results. These proceedings summarise the current status of the experiment.
