Collide@CERN explores elements even more elusive than the Higgs Boson – human ingenuity, creativity and imagination. It is CERN’s new experiment in arts and science: a 3-year artist’s residency programme initiated by the laboratory. A prize – an open call to artists working in different art forms – will be awarded annually. The winning artists will interact and engage with CERN scientists in order to take their artistic work to new creative dimensions.

Particle physics and the arts are inextricably linked: both are ways to explore our existence – what it is to be human and our place in the universe. The two fields are natural creative partners for innovation in the 21st century.
