CERN is a research facility, and more accurately a collection of reserach facilites that have been around a long time - since the early 1950's. Is one by any chance referring to the Large Hadron Collider which is the newest large accelerator system at CERN.

CERN = Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire, or European Council for Nuclear Research, but now it is Organisation Européenne pour la Recherche Nucléaire (European Organization for Nuclear Research)
