Pause operations: company temporarily curtailing operations while keeping return options open

Leave Suspension
The Company Statement
March 19, 2024

Suspended Russia's observer status; halted new collaborations. Following a decision taken by the CERN Council, the Organization’s cooperation with the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus will conclude at the expiry in 2024 of the International Cooperation Agreements (ICAs) with the two countries. This decision was taken following the Council’s June 2022 decisions. CERN announced in December 2023 that it would cease cooperation with Russia from November 2024. Scientists overseeing the Russian part of the project are proposing solutions that would allow Russian physicists to continue working at the collider. One option is to organize the work of the Russians “under a neutral flag,” but most administrators are ready to completely stop cooperation. On November 30, 2024 CERN will cease cooperation with about 500 employees with ties to Russia.
