Special Proton - What future for CERN?

The Proton, a publication of the Staff Association, has accompanied, for decades, all the important events of the Organization and its staff.
Sensing the concern of the staff, on this so important question of what the future for CERN is, we decided to propose a new issue.
The aim of this publication is to give an open forum to active and retired staff scientists to share their vision and ideas on the subject.

We would like to thank all the authors for their contributions, which offer diverse and complementary insights on the subject.

The manuscript will be presented at the January public meeting.
We wish you a good reading!

By enrolling your child in the CERN Staff Association's Jardin des Particules, you are giving him or her the opportunity to develop in a privileged living environment, rich in different cultures and nationalities.


The primary aim of the GAC-EPA is to allow retired staff members to stay in touch with the CERN.

The Group shall have the aim of bringing together the beneficiaries of the Pension Fundand providing them with information on questions relating to their situation. It shall also aim to allow collective representation of pensioners to the Staff Associationsand the Administrations of the Organizations in all the areas which concern them, and thus to assure the best possible protection of their collective interests.

The Group shall also, according to the means available, provide its members with assistance in their personal initiatives and a framework for their activities as members of the Pension Fund.

“Permanences" for the use of its members wishing to have one of their problems studied by the GAC-EPA are organised on a regular basis.
