At the end of the Second World War, European science was no longer world-class, but a handful of visionary scientists imagined creating a European atomic physics laboratory. Founded in 1954, the CERN laboratory sits astride the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva. The work of CERN helps to uncover what the universe is made of and how it works.

CERN employs about 2500 people from nationalities all around the world, working in every area of the Organization, from physicists to computer scientists to chefs. It is run by 23 Member States, each of which has two official delegates to the CERN Council. The Simonites event will include a guided tour of the facilities and an apéro onsite after the event.
