UCT RESEARCH INNOVATION HIGHLIGHTS 2018-19 - Page 17



Launched in 2003, the UCT-CERN
Research Centre was formed out of a
confluence of research programmes in
the Department of Physics. Five years
later, UCT-CERN served as a stepping
stone for the creation of the National SACERN Programme, and Professor Jean
Cleymans, director of UCT-CERN, was
appointed its chairman.
The national programme recognised
10 years of collaboration in fundamental
physics at CERN’s Large Hadron
Collider (LHC), which has brought many
opportunities for South Africa’s scientific
community. Over the past decade, South
African researchers have contributed to
major breakthroughs at the global facility,
including the historical discovery of the
Higgs boson particle in 2012.
