CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, is the world leading research
institute in of pure scientific and fundamental character
and of strictly non-military nature. It promotes the study of the
fundamental constituents of matter. CERN is an international collaboration,
some 3000 staff from 19 Member States work together
to provide a service for the international physics community in general.
In addition, CERN hosts some 6000 visiting scientists from all over the world.
This generates an exciting and dynamic

The National Research Council of Canada has been the principal science
and technology agency of the Canadian federal government. With 16 research institutes located
in eleven major centres across the country, NRC is well-positioned to foster regional economic
