Israel Will be First Non-Euro Member of Nuclear Research Group

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), has voted to welcome Israel as its 21st member state.

CERN’s main area of research is particle physics, which is the study of the fundamental constituents of matter and the forces acting between them.

CERN was established in 1953.  It is located near Geneva, on the border between France and Switzerland.  In addition to its newest member, Israel, most of the Western and Central European countries are members, including England.  Israel is the first non-European country to achieve membership status, and it is the first country to become a member in 14 years.

“The Israeli scientific community has brought a great deal to CERN over the years,” said CERN Director General Rolf Heuer. “I am looking forward to welcoming Israel as our 21st Member State and to intensifying our collaboration.”

“Israel is proud to become a full member of CERN, a flagship of European scientific research,” said Eviatar Manor, Israel’s Ambassador to the UN in Geneva. “We look forward to contributing to the further development of our relationship for the benefit of science, development and education.”

“As a member of the fact-finding mission that assessed Israel’s readiness for CERN Membership, I was extremely impressed with the quality of Israeli research and researchers,” said CERN Research Director Sergio Bertolucci.

“This is a very special moment for Israeli Science and Israel,” said Eliezer Rabinovici, Chair of the Israeli Academy of Science’s National Committee for High Energy Physics and Professor at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. “It reflects decades in which many Israeli scientists, technicians and Israeli industry have contributed significantly to the European scientific effort at CERN. It also has a sense of return. We are becoming full members of the crew at a most exciting period in which CERN is about to scan new horizons.”
