CERN is home to the world’s largest particle physics laboratory, where physicists and engineers probe the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter – the fundamental particles. The particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives the physicists clues about how the particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. Founded in 1954, CERN laboratory sits astride the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva. It is one of Europe's first joint ventures and now has 21 member states. CERN laboratory employs about 2,400 full-time and 1,500 part-time employees, and hosts some 10,000 visiting scientists and engineers, from 608 universities/research facilities and 113 countries.

CERN has the responsibility of TA7-CERN (David d’Enterria).
