The Future Circular Collider (FCC) study, an ambitious global initiative to secure the future of high-energy physics in the 21st century, took centre stage at the International Fair of Haute-Savoie/Mont Blanc in La Roche-sur-Foron from 27 April to 6 May. An information booth, overflowing with interactive exhibits, captivating presentations and branded goodies, showcased the proposed research infrastructure’s scientific potential, alongside the applications of particle physics research in everyday contexts.

The FCC study envisages a next generation particle collider that could succeed the LHC at CERN, currently the most powerful collider in the world. The FCC aspires to offer the broadest possible exploration of the Universe's mysteries via high-precision and high-energy studies of the elementary constituents of matter and the forces governing their interactions.

The information booth at the International Fair of Haute-Savoie/Mont Blanc provided a unique opportunity for residents and visitors to articulate their views on the project and engage in constructive dialogue with the FCC team. Acknowledging the importance of transparency and community involvement, the project team is committed to openly addressing the hurdles inherent in such a monumental scientific endeavour. CERN’s participation in the International Fair of Haute-Savoie/Mont Blanc, enhanced by the valuable help of volunteers from the FCC team, resulted in meaningful discussions with more than 2000 members of the local community on topics ranging from the required technological advancements to sustainability measures.
