Cafe Scientifique: After the Higgs – what next for the Large Hadron Collider

Pop along to Cafe Scientifique and enjoy the discussion over a drink. You don't need to be involved in science or technology to join us – just have an interest and open mind.

In 2012 our understanding of elementary particles made a giant leap with the discovery of the Higgs particle at the Large Hadron Collider located at CERN near Geneva. Since the end of 2012 the LHC has undergone a major upgrade to increase the energy of the colliding protons by almost a factor of two. I will review the Nobel-prize-winning, discovery-of-the-century Higgs particle and outline the next discoveries that we hope will emerge from the LHC collisions.

What to expect

A short informal talk to introduce the topic followed by questions, answers and general discussion. The evening is designed to appeal to anyone with an interest in science and technology – and takes place in surroundings where anyone can feel comfortable asking a question.

So, tell your friends, family and anyone else who springs to mind!
