CERN Accelerating science

Social and cultural activities

Since its beginnings, the Staff Association has had a tradition of supporting, coordinating and helping groups of people wishing to organize social and cultural activities for the CERN staff.

It gives financial support to CERN sports and leisure clubs, to charity associations (aid to the Third World) and solidarity groups in the event of unforeseen natural disasters.

Through it help, it promotes solidarity within the staff and maintains a link with the world around it.

The social and cultural activities also aim at helping new arrivals to integrate into the local creative scene.
