Izrael polnopravna članica CERN

    CERN je po skoraj petnajstih letih dobil novo polnopravno članico, ko je danes CERN Council soglasno izglasoval da Izrael postane 21. članica. Iz sporočila za javnost:

    Israel’s formal association with CERN began in 1991, when the country was
    granted Observer status by Council in recognition of the major involvement
    of Israeli institutions in the OPAL experiment, accompanied by
    contributions to the running of the LEP accelerator. Today, Israel is
    involved with the ATLAS experiment at the LHC, as well as the ALPHA and
    COMPASS experiments, and experiments at CERN’s ISOLDE facility. Israel
    contributes to the LHC and CLIC accelerators, and operates a tier-2 centre
    of the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid. Israel also supports the involvement
    of Palestinian students at CERN.
