Emmanuel Tsesmelis is an experimental particle physicist with a career spanning scientific research, academic teaching, science communication, international relations and management at CERN and at several universities.

CERN is the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, the world’s largest particle physics research centre. Founded in 1954, the Laboratory was one of Europe’s first joint ventures and has become a premier example of international collaboration. CERN’s primary subject of study is pure science and is concentrated on exploring the Universe’s most fundamental questions, such as What is it made of? and How did it come to be the way it is? The Laboratory’s tools, the particle accelerators and the particle detectors, are amongst the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which has recently started operations, is the latest such facility at CERN and it has launched a new era of research in particle physics.

In this presentation, the Laboratory’s primary aims will be described, including research and discovery in particle physics; the advancement and development of new technologies and their transfer to fields beyond particle physics; the education and training of tomorrow’s scientists and engineers; and opportunities for international collaboration.
