Open Science at CERN: Home
Welcome to the CERN Open Science portal
At CERN, we believe that the practice of open science is key to delivering on our organizational mission: to perform world-class research in fundamental physics at the forefront of human knowledge; provide a unique range of particle accelerator facilities that enable this research, educate the next generation of scientists; and unite people from all over the world to push the frontiers of science and technology, for the benefit of all.
Supported by long-term financial investments from its Member and Associate Member States, with significant contributions also from non-Member States, CERN is committed to the advancement of science and wide dissemination of knowledge by adopting practices to make scientific research more open, global, collaborative and responsive to societal changes. By embracing open science, we aim to cultivate a dynamic and evolving ecosystem of initiatives, projects and interoperable technologies to maximise the global impact of our research.
