CERN’s work is to uncover what the universe is made of and how it works. CERN provides a unique range of particle accelerator facilities to researchers, to advance the boundaries of human knowledge. The Laboratory, established in 1954, has become a prime example of international collaboration.
The mission is to:
- provide a unique range of particle accelerator facilities that enable research at the forefront of human knowledge.
- perform world-class research in fundamental physics.
- unite people from all over the world to push the frontiers of science and technology, for the benefit of all.
