Welcome to CERN's Open Source Program Office

Unlock the Power of Open Science and Open Source with CERN

Welcome to the CERN OSPO, the Open Source Program Office of the largest particle-physics laboratory in the world.  Here, the frontiers of science and technology meet the boundless world of open-source innovation.

As the CERN OSPO, we not only aim to serve the CERN community with answers and insights regarding Open Source, but we also want to empower the world’s open science ambitions through CERN’s open-source software and hardware – well beyond basic research.

CERN develops technologies in the course of our journey to unravel the mysteries of the universe. These technologies are also powering innovation in domains such as healthcare, aerospace, environment, and quantum computing, and we're now setting our course on unleashing the potential of Open Source for scientific and technological progress in fields beyond high-energy physics.

In this website, you will find plenty of information to start exploring our open-source hardware and software. If you are a company or institution interested in establishing a partnership or setting up a collaboration in the framework of an open-source initiative, do reach out to us.

If you seek additional details regarding innovation partnerships or the CERN Venture Connect startup program, both of which benefit from our Open Source portfolio, please explore the CERN Knowledge Transfer website.

More information on CERN's Open Science strategy and work can be found here.

Let's Partner for Progress!

With a legacy of groundbreaking research, CERN invites institutes, companies and startups to join us in this journey. Explore our open-source projects, benefit from our expertise and hands-on experience, and engage in partnerships that transcend the boundaries of high-energy physics.

Are you forward-thinking and looking to collaborate with CERN in the realm of Open Source and innovation? We're eager to explore the potential of a partnership. Contact us today to initiate a conversation about how we can join forces.

We believe in the transformative power of collaboration and invite you to be part of our journey.
