Large Hadron Collider: revealing the secrets of our Universe

The Large Hadron Collider is the world’s largest science collaboration. Alongside other experiments based at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, it’s seeking answers to some of the most fundamental questions in science by recreating the conditions that existed a billionth of a second after the Big Bang.

CERN is the UK’s national laboratory for particle physics and we’re involved in every aspect of the organisation; from the science, engineering and technology to the management and administration.

CERN offers inspiring opportunities for education, training, research and industry. Follow the links to find out more!
