's main function is to provide the particle accelerators and other infrastructure needed for high-energy physics research -- as a result, numerous experiments have been constructed at CERN
through international collaborations.
Sixteen Engineering Establishments, under the auspices of Pakistan Aerospace Council, made presentations to the CERN
Team and the Pakistani scientific community audience who attended the event in a large number.
Researchers at CERN

is the recognition of the achievements of Pakistani scientists, engineers and technicians in their relevant areas of expertise.
The Prime Minister underscored that Pakistan and CERN
have been collaborating since 1994, and have carried out a number of successful projects involving sophisticated technologies and precision engineering.
One of the best technologies of the CERN
was the invention of the World Wide Web.
Recently it was announced by CERN
(Conseil EuropACopyrighten pour la Recherche NuclACopyrightaire) or The European Organisation for Nuclear Research, that Pakistan has officially been made an associate member of the prestigious organization, after the country had ratified an agreement, signed in December 2014.
