European Strategy Session of Council

Administrative history

The CERN Council launched at its June and September meetings in 2005 a process to define a European strategy for particle physics in order 

  • to enhance the visibility of existing European particle physics programmes;
  • to foster increased collaboration among Europe's particle physics laboratories and institutes;
  • to promote a coordinated European participation in world-wide projects;
  • to reiterate the CERN Council's 2004 position on the European the International Linear Collider;
  • to encourage knowledge transfer to other disciplines, industries, society;
  • to outline priorities, at least implicitly;
  • to consider time scales;
  • to follow a thematic or project approach, whichever is more appropriate
