Collide is an annual competition that invites artists over 18 years old and of any nationality to apply with a proposal for a research-led residency in Geneva and Barcelona at CERN, the acclaimed research center where physicists are seeking answers by using some of the world’s most powerful particle accelerators.

The focus of the residencies is to invite artists into the Laboratory to think, discuss, be informed and inspired, and comprehend the challenges of fundamental research and the big questions that inform physics today.

Targeted at artists across all creative disciplines and all nationalities, Collide includes 15,000 Swiss Francs as a research and artistic production award; personal allowance, travel costs and accommodation within a fixed budget for the three months of the residency at CERN and in Barcelona; and curatorial and scientific support to develop the residency and production project.
