Particle Accelerators and People

Accelerators produce beams of subatomic particles and charged atoms that help manage our health and the environment. They also provide a significant tool for manufacturing industry, for sustaining greener, safer energy, and for securing our boarders and ensuring national security. Accelerators offer advanced investigation methods considered essential in many fields of basic and applied science. Innovative technical developments are in progress or are on the horizon, in Europe and elsewhere. These developments will extend the practical uses of accelerators which will be to the social and economic benefit of all.
