All this, focused towards exploring possible collaborations between startups from Basque Country and CERN, under the umbrella of the INEUSTAR-Pioneers program that the Spanish Science Industry Association, INEUSTAR, is promoting and encouraging in collaboration -in the Basque Country- with BIC-Araba. Several proposals of the use of CERN technologies by Basque startups are being analyzed for their eventual participation in the aforementioned program INEUSTAR-Pioneers.

During the mission, the CMS -one of the big 4 LHC's (Large Hadron Collider) instruments- was visited.

“My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.”

His personal overcoming, his continuous intelectual search, his sense of humor, and his view of the future enhance his humanity and make him, undoubtedly, one of the key figures of the last decades.
