The European strategy for particle physics, which is due to be updated by May 2020, will guide the direction of the field to the mid-2020s and beyond.
This year the CLIC workshop focused on preparations for the update of the European Strategy for Particle Physics in 2019–2020.
Multi-messenger astronomy, neutrino physics and dark matter are among several topics set to take priority in Europe, according to a report by the Astroparticle Physics European Consortium (APPEC).
Lithuania’s relationship with CERN dates back to an International Cooperation Agreement signed in 2004, with Lithuanian researchers contributing to the CMS experiment since 2007.
A platform for internationally competitive research in South-East Europe would stimulate the education of young scientists, and reverse the brain drain, says former CERN DG Herwig Schopper.

Ninety years after the famous photograph of the 1927 Solvay conference, the University of Trento and the Italian Physical Society created a more modern picture.
That is half the energy set out five years ago in the ILC’s technical design report (TDR), shortening the length of the previous design (31 km) by around a third and slashing its cost by up to 40%.
Rapid progress is being made in novel acceleration techniques.
In 2010, the CERN Council approved a radical shift in membership policy that opened full membership to non-European states.
