Applications are now open for the Funded CERN Openlab Summer Student Program. Each summer, CERN openlab runs a nine-week program for bachelor’s and master’s students specializing in subjects related to computer science. These students come to CERN to work on cutting-edge projects with our collaborators, gaining hands-on experience with the latest ICT solutions.
