The impact of CERN is known to reach far beyond particle physics or fundamental science. Two 2020 examples are the recently announced new open data policy and CERN’s Environmental Report, publicly released for the first time this year:
- CERN announced a new open data policy, in line with the open science principles which aims to make scientific research more reproducible, accessible, and collaborative.
- CERN’s first public Environment Report has been released. It covers 2017-2018 and details the status of CERN’s environmental footprint, along with objectives and projects for the coming years.
