Israel’s formal association with CERN began in 1991, when the country was
granted Observer status by Council in recognition of the major involvement
of Israeli institutions in the OPAL experiment, accompanied by
contributions to the running of the LEP accelerator. Today, Israel is
involved with the ATLAS experiment at the LHC, as well as the ALPHA and
COMPASS experiments, and experiments at CERN’s ISOLDE facility. Israel
contributes to the LHC and CLIC accelerators, and operates a tier-2 centre
of the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid. Israel also supports the involvement
of Palestinian students at CERN.
