CERN is celebrating 60 years of science for peace in 2014

Seeking and finding answers to questions about the Universe Pushing back the frontiers of technology Bringing nations together through science Training the scientists of tomorrow

The year 2014 holds a particular significance for CERN: on 29 September it will be exactly 60 years since the Organization was founded.

CERN was established after the Second World War by a handful of Europe’s leading scientists who saw an opportunity to construct an international laboratory for fundamental research that would bring nations together through science. Today CERN has 21 Member States and many other countries from around the world also participate in its research programme. In 2014, CERN is celebrating 60 years of science for peace!

To celebrate this anniversary in style, CERN has put together a rich and attractive programme offering something for everyone: public lectures, guided tours, practical demonstrations and exhibitions inspired by science. In 2014, CERN will be abuzz with these exciting events!

CERN’s Member States are also hosting events to celebrate this anniversary. A variety of events of all kinds will provide a great opportunity for exchanges between the scientific community and the general public.

TEDxCERN

 

TEDxCERN is happening again and the theme for this year’s event is Forward – Charting the Future with Science. It will address the essential role that science must play in trying to find solutions to many important issues the world faces today.

 

The event provides a unique platform at CERN for some of the world’s leading researchers, scientists, developers, designers and artists to share and build bold visions of the future. What ideas in research, technology, innovation and education could contribute to solving the challenges we see globally?

 

This year, TEDxCERN will show how science is essential in shaping the landscape that future scientists and decision-makers will have to navigate. The key topics of the talks will include climate, health, food, water and energy.

 

The event will be held in English. Only registered ticket-holders will be allowed to attend.

 

Parking is VERY limited, so you are strongly recommended to use public transport.

 

Car parks available near CERN

Celebrating the first of a kind

This joint opinion piece was written by Agnieszka Zalewska, President of CERN Council, and Rolf Heuer, CERN Director-General.

 

It was on 7 and 8 October 1954 that the first meeting of the CERN Council took place, opened by Frenchman Robert Valeur, retiring Chairman of the interim Council that had overseen the establishment of CERN. On the day we celebrate that first meeting with a special Council Symposium, it’s interesting to look back at the meeting’s minutes.
