For the General Public
CERN is publicly funded by its 23 Member States and Associate Member States. Find out below about how this investment creates a positive impact on society.
VZLUSAT-1 is a technological nanosatellite for in-orbit demonstration of new technologies and products.
In 2020, Zenodo, the open-data repository developed by CERN with co-funding from the European Commission, was upgraded with additional storage and a dedicated community for COVID-19 research.
The CernVM File System was developed to assist high-energy physics collaborations to deploy software on the worldwide-distributed computing infrastructure used to run data processing applications.
PlanetWatch, a CERN spin-off, aims to provide a solution to generate, validate, analyse and record air quality data. Their environmental sensor uses the CERN technology C2MON.
The European Synchotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) aquires Power Converters to power their magnets
CERN developed a new multiple memory system (MMS), which solves this problem and increseses the reliability of a programmable system located in harsh environments.
Terabee SAS, a start-up supported by the French BIC Innogex, developed the proximity-sensing device Proximeter, based on CERN’s miniIoT (Internet of Things) technology.
The CERN Robotics Software is used to manage autonomous movement, which allows a modular robotics platform to perform sophisticated tasks.
In 2018, the start-up SAFETYN SaS joined InnoGEX, the French BIC of CERN technologies.
