CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is a multinational research institute located near Geneva, Switzerland. Established in 1954, CERN is primarily focused on particle physics and the exploration of fundamental scientific questions about the universe. It operates the world’s largest particle physics laboratory, where experiments are conducted using advanced particle accelerators and detectors.

One of CERN’s most notable achievements is the development of the World Wide Web, created by British physicist Tim Berners-Lee in 1989 while working at CERN. Berners-Lee implimented a system of interconnected documents, accessible via the internet, which laid the foundation for the modern internet and revolutionized communication and information sharing worldwide.

In addition to its scientific research, CERN collaborates with institutions and researchers from around the world to advance our understanding of the universe and the fundamental forces that govern it. Through its groundbreaking discoveries and technological innovations, CERN continues to push the boundaries of human knowledge in the field of particle physics.
