CERN & Society

At CERN, we believe that scientific curiosity is an essential part of being human and we wish to share the excitement and enthusiasm of discovery with as wide a public as possible. 

CERN shows what people can achieve when they come together for a common purpose. The basic technology of the LHC was impossible when the project was conceived, yet today it runs routinely. Such grand challenges are just a normal part of life at CERN, and we want you to be part of this community.

CERN & Society is a programme to develop some of the education and outreach, technology transfer and innovation, and creative and cultural initiatives at CERN. These are designed to engage people around the world with CERN’s visionary mission.

Although CERN’s fundamental particle physics research is funded by contributions from Member States, CERN & Society depends on voluntary external support.
