Presentation
The Particle Physics research status after the Higgs boson discovery. CERN a strategic partner in the data revolution.
The discovery of Bozon Higgs at CERN in 2012 has been the culmination of particle physics research for decades. The research in sequence is expected more difficult and challenging for investigation to many unanswered and unresolved problems along with the development of future acceleration systems that will continue to provide higher energy beams for the experiments. In parallel, CERN has become an important strategic partner in the data revolution for covering the demands of modern experiments with enormous applications in education, industry, medicine, etc.
