The CERN Directorate established the CERN against COVID-19 task force to promote and channel ideas and initiatives from the CERN community that may support the collective global fight against COVID-19. The objective of CERN against COVID-19 is to ensure an effective and well-coordinated response, drawing on CERN’s many competencies and advanced technologies and working closely with experts in healthcare, drug development, epidemiology and emergency response so as to maximise the impact of our contributions.

Actions range from the deployment of CERN’s powerful computing, engineering and technical resources to contribute to the global fight against COVID-19, to assisting the local effort through logistical and emergency response support.

Proposals and ideas can be sent to
