A universal symbol of research, knowledge and innovation
The Globe of Science and Innovation symbolises CERN’s message to society in the fields of science, particle physics and cutting-edge technologies and their applications in everyday life.
The Globe of Science and Innovation is an emblem for CERN and a symbol of sustainable development for all. It is 27 metres high and 40 metres in diameter, which is about the size of the dome of Saint Peter's in Rome! A unique visual landmark by day and by night, the Globe of Science and Innovation is a symbol of Planet Earth.
