Geneva, 28 March 2014. At a ceremony today at Geneva airport, CERN1 and ESA signed a framework agreement for future cooperation on research and technology in areas of mutual interest. Future areas may include the development and characterization of innovative materials for applications in extreme conditions and for cutting-edge scientific performances, the development of new micro-technologies to be applied in miniaturized distributed sensor systems and the development and testing of high-performance detectors for high-energy physics experiments and space payloads.
Chicago, USA and Geneva, Switzerland, 19 March 2014. Scientists working on the world’s leading particle collider experiments have joined forces, combined their data and produced the first joint result from Fermilab1’s Tevatron and CERN2’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC), past and current holders of the record for most powerful particle collider on Earth. Scientists from the four experiments involved—ATLAS, CDF, CMS and DZero—announced their joint findings on the mass of the top quark today at the Rencontres de Moriond international physics conference in Italy.
Geneva, 18 March 2014. CERN1 is celebrating 60 years of science for peace in 2014, with events at the Organization’s Geneva laboratory and in its Members States. Festivities will focus on two key events. The first is on 1 July at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, where the Organization’s 12 founding members established the CERN Convention on 1 July 1953. The second marks CERN’s 60th birthday, 29 September, the date on which the Convention was ratified 60 years ago and the Organization formally came into existence. It will be celebrated in Geneva.
