Science and Research: a field which impacts us all

Geneva is a recognized academic and intellectual hub, where researchers and experts share their knowledge daily in a research-friendly environment. As the headquarters of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), Geneva is at the forefront of fundamental research that explores the origins of the universe. Several research and training centres as well as internationally renowned academic institutions are also based in the Geneva region.

More generally, the web that we use daily, the weather forecast that we watch regularly or the routine medical checks we submit to, all result from scientific research.
