Latvia has become an Associate Member State of CERN and joins the scientific elite

CERN has been officially notified that the remaining steps for the entry into force of Latvia's Associate Membership have been completed.

An outstanding achievement that opens new horizons for Latvian scientists and wider opportunities for Latvian entrepreneurs to participate in procurements organized by CERN, offering their goods and services needed by CERN.

Primekss already has started cooperation with CERN in a joint research program with Riga Technical University. The main aim of this program is to conduct research in the field of materials science to establish characteristics of the PrīmX® specialist concrete with optimal radiation resistance and radioactive waste product leakage prevention capabilities that could be used for CERN needs.

Primekss team is proud of Latvia's new associated member status!
