Organisation of physics popularisation seminars
Greek Particle Physics Outreach Group
The Greek Particle Physics Outreach Group is part of the European Particle Physics Outreach Group founded in CERN in order to familiarise the wide public with research and its results in the field of particle physics. The Greek Group, in cooperation with Universities and research centers, organises seminars and lectures for high school and college students and secondary education professors, as well as presentations in public.
John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation contributes to the implementation of training seminars for the introduction in theory and experiments of elementary particles to schools in remote areas, covering the transport and accommodation costs for the group members. This support is performed in view of enforcing secondary education, enabling college and high school students to develop their knowledge and experience beyond the school program.
CERN (Organisation Européenne pour la Recherche Nucléaire) is the world's largest particle physics laboratory.
CERN was established in 1954 with the participation of 12 European countries, among them Greece.
