Cern admits Serbia as member

Serbia has joined Cern, the European particle physics laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland, and home to the Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator.

Cern welcomed Serbia as its 23rd member state on 24 March, when it received formal notification that the country had signed up to its convention. As a member state, Serbia will have voting rights in Cern’s governing council and will contribute to the organisation’s budget.

“The Serbian scientific community has made strong contributions to Cern’s projects for many years. Membership will strengthen the longstanding relationship between Cern and Serbia, creating opportunities for increased collaboration in scientific research, training, education, innovation and knowledge-sharing,” said Fabiola Gianotti, Cern’s director-general.
