European Particle Physics Strategy

Overview

The European Strategy for Particle Physics provides a clear prioritisation of European ambitions in advancing the particle physics science. The Strategy is due to be updated by May 2020 to guide the direction of the field to the mid-2020s and beyond.

Detailed information about the European Particle Physics Strategy Update can be found at the EPPSU 2018-2020 webpage in a brochure.

The deliberation document explains the strategy and a press release provides the essential summary.

The CERN DG explained the outcome of the EPPSU to the CERN personnel on 29 June 2020 (Indico).

Message from the Director General, F. Gianotti

Dear Colleagues,

Today, the CERN Council decided to update the European Strategy for Particle Physics with the enthusiastic support of all Member States. The Strategy sets out the scientific vision for the near and long-term future of our field. Concluding an inclusive process that has taken place over almost two years, the Strategy update represents a major accomplishment for the European high-energy physics community, and provides a basis for Europe to maintain its prominent role in particle physics and the innovative technologies developed by the field. The Strategy recommendations and the deliberation document can be found here: Strategy recommendations : https://indico.cern.ch/event/924500/contributions/3884837/subcontributions/308163/attachments/2060582/3456333/CERN-ESU-013.pdf Deliberation document : https://indico.cern.ch/event/924500/contributions/3884837/subcontributions/308163/attachments/2060582/3456338/CERN-ESU-014.pdf

The update of the Strategy rounded off a rich week of discussions and decisions. The Council and its subordinate committees were impressed by, and warmly congratulated CERN and its personnel on, the successful handling of the Covid-19 pandemic and the gradual and safe re-start plan. They also expressed appreciation for the work done in the framework of the “CERN against Covid-19 task force”. The Scientific Policy Committee applauded the wealth of beautiful physics results produced by the LHC experiments that were presented at the LHCP conference at end of May. The draft Medium-Term Plan for the period 2021-2025 was very well received; the final plan will be presented to the Council for approval in September.

The Council approved the Management’s proposal for the items to be included in the five-yearly review of the financial and social conditions of the members of the personnel. The proposal was based on concertation with the Staff Association and represents an important step in the review process.

CERN’s first-ever public environment report was presented to the Council, which agreed to its release into the public domain, and we look forward to sharing it with all of you soon.

As of today, our Member and Associate Member States have paid 88% of their 2020 contributions, which demonstrates their continued strong support for the Organization even during these difficult times for the whole world. We are grateful for their commitment, which enables us to fulfil our mission. Many thanks to all of you for your hard work and dedication, which lies at the heart of their confidence in us.

As we approach the end of the first half of the year, which has presented extraordinary challenges for the life of the Laboratory, we are pleased to invite you to an online meeting at 15.30 on 29 June, where we will provide a more in-depth update on the outcome of this Council session and on the ongoing gradual resumption of on-site activities. We look forward to this opportunity for us all to come together, virtually, to look ahead to an exciting future for CERN.

With our warmest regards,

Fabiola Gianotti, Frédérick Bordry, Eckhard Elsen, Martin Steinacher, Charlotte Warakaulle


Chers collègues,

Aujourd'hui, le Conseil du CERN a décidé à l’unanimité de mettre à jour la stratégie européenne pour la physique des particules, et a apporté un soutien enthousiaste. La stratégie présente la vision scientifique pour l'avenir à moyen et long termes de notre discipline. Marquant la touche finale d'un processus inclusif qui a duré près de deux ans, la mise à jour de la stratégie est une réalisation majeure de la communauté européenne de la physique des hautes énergies, sur laquelle s'appuiera l'Europe pour rester au premier plan de la physique des particules et des innovations technologiques dans le domaine. Les recommandations de la stratégie, ainsi que le document explicatif, peuvent être consultés ici : Mise à jour de la stratégie : https://indico.cern.ch/event/924500/contributions/3884837/subcontributions/308163/attachments/2060582/3456352/CERN-ESU-013_mise_a_jour_strategie.pdf Document explicatif: https://indico.cern.ch/event/924500/contributions/3884837/subcontributions/308163/attachments/2060582/3456353/CERN-ESU-014_Document_explicatif.pdf

La mise à jour de la stratégie vient clôturer une semaine riche en discussions et décisions. Impressionnés par la manière dont le CERN est parvenu à gérer la pandémie de Covid-19, et par le plan de reprise progressive et sûre des activités, le Conseil et ses comités subsidiaires ont vivement félicité l'Organisation et les membres de son personnel. Ils ont également fait part de leur gratitude pour le travail réalisé dans le cadre du groupe d'action « CERN against Covid-19 ». Le Comité des directives scientifiques a salué la moisson de magnifiques résultats de physique obtenus par les expériences LHC, qui ont été présentés lors de la conférence LHCP, fin mai. Le projet de plan à moyen terme pour la période 2021-2025 a reçu un accueil très favorable ; la version finale du plan sera présentée au Conseil pour approbation en septembre.

Le Conseil a approuvé la proposition de la Direction concernant les sujets qui feront l'objet de l'examen quinquennal des conditions financières et sociales des membres du personnel. La proposition, faite après concertation avec l'Association du personnel, représente une étape importante dans le processus.

Le tout premier rapport public du CERN sur l'environnement a été présenté au Conseil du CERN, qui a accepté qu'il soit porté à la connaissance du public, et nous nous réjouissons de pouvoir le partager avec vous prochainement.

À ce jour, nos États membres et États membres associés ont acquitté 88 % de leurs contributions pour 2020, ce qui montre qu'ils continuent d'accorder un soutien solide à l'Organisation, même en cette période difficile pour le monde entier. Nous leur sommes reconnaissants pour leur engagement, qui nous permet de remplir notre mission. Un grand merci à tous et toutes pour votre travail intense et votre investissement, qui sont au cœur de la confiance qu'ils nous accordent.

Alors que le premier semestre touche bientôt à sa fin, en cette année qui aura présenté des défis extraordinaires pour la vie du Laboratoire, nous sommes heureux de vous inviter à une réunion en ligne le 29 juin, à 15 h 30, où nous vous expliquerons plus en détail les résultats de cette session du Conseil et ferons le point sur la reprise progressive des activités sur le domaine. Nous nous réjouissons à la perspective de nous réunir tous ensemble, de manière virtuelle, pour envisager l'avenir passionnant qui attend le CERN.

Avec nos plus chaleureuses salutations,

Fabiola Gianotti, Frédérick Bordry, Eckhard Elsen, Martin Steinacher et Charlotte Warakaulle
