This public announcement has been issued by the CERN administration. You can find the original announcement here.
In light of the global evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic, CERN has carefully reviewed the feasibility of running of its diverse student and trainee programmes, with the health and wellbeing of people at the heart of its preoccupations. Following postponement of start dates for student and traineeships, and following the suspension of the Job Shadowing programme, CERN finally had to cancel the flagship CERN Summer Student and openlab Summer Student programmes, further to extensive consultation with all stakeholders, as well as the Children of personnel programme for 2020. All necessary communications with individuals concerned have been coordinated by HR.
