Spain will continue to invest in CERN

Spain is one of the 21 member states of CERN (European Center for Particle Physics) and its contribution represents 7.8% of the budget (around one billion euros in 2015), the fifth most important. And from now on it will continue to do so, as you can see in the video that heads this post.

"CERN is more than a laboratory, although it is in Geneva, it is also a center where Spanish research is conducted, where Spaniards are trained and we want to continue contributing with it," said the vice president of the Spanish Government, Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría, at the end of an extensive visit to the institution's headquarters. It should be remembered that at CERN we also found the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the largest and most energy-efficient particle accelerator in the world, in which the Higgs boson was recently detected.
