Under the auspices of the Rice University Department of Physics and Astronomy and to celebrate the launch of the CERN Alumni Texas group, this group will hold its first alumni event on 26 April 2018. CERN alumni and distinguished guests will receive updates on the CMS detector from our host Professor Paul Padley, Department of Physics and Astronomy and meet other alumni who have contributed to CERN’s scientific endeavor.
As the world’s leading research center for particle physics and hosting more than 13,000 researchers from all over the world, CERN produces cutting-edge science and technology. Today, CERN alumni are ubiquitous in all corners of the planet and many are right here in Texas pursuing careers across multiple disciplines including aerospace, life sciences, and energy, some have launched successful start-ups, many applying CERN-inspired technologies.
The High-Energy Network allows alumni to continue to share CERN’s values, support its activities, and serve as a valuable resource for members transitioning to careers outside of the laboratory. Each alumnus plays an important role in maintaining support for the mission of CERN and for particle physics.
