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

2014 holds a particular significance for CERN as on 29 September the Organization celebrated its 60th anniversary.

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.

Film : La fièvre des particules - suivi de débats avec des chercheurs français

La Fièvre des Particules suit dans l'intimité six brillants scientifiques cherchant à démêler les mystères les mystères de l’Univers. Certaines projections sont suivies d'un échange avec des physiciens des laboratoires français du CNRS, des universités et du CEA, spécialistes de la physique des particules. À travers leurs succès et leurs échecs, nous découvrons la plus importante et fascinante avancée scientifique du monde vers  l’infiniment petit et l’épopée de la découverte du boson de Higgs.

UNESCO: World Science Day for Peace and Development

Established by UNESCO in 2001, World Science Day for Peace and Development is celebrated worldwide on 10 November every year. The day offers an opportunity to mobilise various partners (scientific and research institutions, the media, science teachers, NGO’s) to highlight the important role of science in society and to engage the wider public in debates on emerging scientific issues and the relevance of science in their daily lives.
