Building n°42

In its fifty years of existence, CERN has become the best-performing laboratory and research centre in the world for particle physics. As a founding member of CERN, Switzerland has always taken a particular interest in this organisation, because of its global reputation, and of the scientific benefit to Swiss researchers. The FIPOI loaned the funds needed for the construction of Building n°40. Ten years later, the building was too small, and so the FIPOI made another loan in order to construct a new building (Building n°42).

Buildings n°40 - 42 financed by the FIPOI
