CERN in Europe

Description of CERN (Centre Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire)

The Concise Encyclopedia of the European Union describes cern (centre européen pour la recherche nucléaire) in the following terms: [1] CERN is the French acronym for Europe’s Geneva-based advanced non-military high energy physics research centre (see more in this European encyclopedia). It is financed by European governments, including certain non-EU countries, and strictly speaking is not a Community organisation. The CERN particle accelerator has produced interesting pure science results but the Centre’s main practical benefits have been by-products, notably the invention of the internet.
