Hi, this is Paula. As the world’s largest physics laboratory, CERN is mostly known for its massive accelerator. But we hear about why the international organisation is now welcoming research into quantum technology.

Meanwhile, for many NGOs, gaining access to the UN Human Rights Council is a less welcoming process, relying on an obscure body for accreditation. And organisations in Geneva are working behind the scenes as mediators between Moscow and Kyiv.

CERN ready to take on the quantum shift. Straddling the Franco-Swiss border, the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is home to the world’s largest physics laboratory and a gigantic particle accelerator. Yet since 2020, little known to many, the prestigious centre has embarked on a programme in quantum technologies, the Quantum Technology Initiative (QTI). Alberto di Meglio, head of innovation in the CERN information technology department, explains CERN’s plans.
