This is an attempt to collect information regarding the Outreach and Education activities of the CHIPP community. Past, present and future activities can be found here, the right persons to contact, outreach material such as posters, talks and publications, press coverage and useful links.
For any comment, input, question etc please contact , who at the moment coordinates the CHIPP outreach group and who is the Swiss representative at The International Particle Physics Outreach Group: . .
Switzerland is represented by in the European Particle Physics Communication Network
If you would like to participate (even occasionally) in communicating Particle Physics with and to the Media, if you have news, photos, announcements to do .. please contact .
If you would like to get information on particle physics and related topics, invite a speaker, visit a laboratory (e.g. CERN) or any other business, contact one of the following persons:

Talks for the general public:
For cancer patients, every day counts. Imagine one could skip one step in the cancer diagnosis and treatment process and do both at the same time: finding out where the tumor is and attacking it right away. A team at the University of Bern, which runs its own medical cyclotron laboratory, is currently working on exactly that. Their cyclotron is a proper workhorse for science. During the night, it produces medical isotopes for cancer diagnostics. During the day, it sidelines as a test facility for particle physics and multi-disciplinary scientific activities.Image : Uni Bern.
In collaboration with Scholars at Risk Switzerland, this sum is intended to enable universities to host a first wave of researchers requesting support. This will allow them to pursue their own academic work at institutions in Switzerland. Additional sums may be allocated if the need arises.Image : denisismagilov, stock.adobe.com

Have you heard of neutrinos? They’re a set of subatomic particles that are likely to cause quite some scientific uproar in the next years. Catch up on what makes these shy little fellows so special and how Swiss particle physicists are involved in solving one of the Universe’s most tenacious mysteries….Image : Kamioka Observatory/ICRR/University of Tokyo
A premier at the European Research Center for Particle Physics (CERN) in Geneva-Meyrin: 24 teenagers and young adults from all over Switzerland spent over two weeks in October at CERN to learn and conduct experiments on site. The “Swiss High-School Students Internship Program 2021” (HSSIP) promotes the next generation of researchers in particle physics.Image : Andrej Maraffio
