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.
