2. Students & Researchers: Towards a new "Knowledge Factory"
Training the next generation of experts
The scientific advances of CERN push the frontiers of technology, which has a positive impact on society globally. Although the core mission of the Laboratory is fundamental research in particle physics, it also has a remit to train the next generation of scientists and to bring nations together.
Furthermore, CERN has a long tradition of organising training courses and visits for students and teachers from all over the world. Large-scale research infrastructures, like the proposed FCCs at CERN, promote science education by pooling teaching resources and expertise, and creating or strengthening networks that connect researchers, teachers and students.
