QUANTUM WORLD TOUR IS PART OF EVENTS CELEBRATING CERN’s 60th ANNIVERSARY

The year 2014 holds a particular significance for CERN : on 29 September it will be exactly 60 years since the Organization was founded.  CERN was established after the Second World War by a handful of Europe’s leading scientists who saw an opportunity to construct an international laboratory for fundamental research that would bring nations together through science.
