CERN Courier magazine: October 2017 digital edition

Cern Courier

Welcome to the digital edition of the October 2017 issue of CERN Courier

For more than six decades, CERN has pursued its mission to gain a deeper understanding of the basic constituents of the universe. In doing so, physicists have had to invent technologies to accelerate particles to the highest energies and then detect, store and analyse the outcome of their collisions. Many of these ideas have spread beyond the laboratory’s confines, and CERN’s knowledge-transfer activities in recent years have led to hundreds of collaboration agreements with firms and organisations and tens of new companies established across sectors ranging from health to space. Innovative technologies are at the heart of the LHC Injectors Upgrade project, which is currently in full swing to prepare CERN’s accelerator complex for the demands of the high-luminosity LHC. We also report on a recent workshop in Nepal highlighting the opportunities for high-energy physics and CERN in the South Asia region, and summarise the latest efforts to better model neutrino-nuclei interactions for future long-baseline neutrino experiments such as DUNE in the US.
