Discovering the universe

This week Pakistan is set to get formal renewal to its status of Associate Member State with CERN, the prestigious international organization of scientific research and development (R&D) based in Switzerland. The CERN Council is scheduled to hold its meeting with the agenda item, as the task force of CERN has visited Pakistan last month to satisfy itself that Pakistan meets adequately the criteria for associate membership under present conditions and environments within its R&D institutions, universities, and industry. Pakistan had become Associate Member State on July 31, 2015, the only Asian country to attain this position at that time. Pakistan ratified the status agreement with CERN on August 26, 2015.
