TODAY, UNFORTUNATELY, ACCESS TO KNOWLEDGE IS NOT ALWAYS EASY EVERYWHERE AROUND THE GLOBE.
CERN’s commitment to knowledge sharing through international cooperation is reflected in numerous educational projects for students, scientists and engineers around the world. Schools of high-energy physics in Europe, Asia, the Pacific and Latin America benefit from this sharing of knowledge. In the Middle East, CERN mobilised its expertise to build a particle accelerator as part of the SESAME project, an international research centre created according to CERN’s institutional model. The Laboratory has also welcomed teachers and students from the Middle East, thus promoting dialogue between the schools of SESAME member countries. All of these projects aim to disseminate scientific excellence, encourage peaceful cooperation and promote the sharing of new knowledge in the whole world.
