On Sunday, 3 November 2019, the 12th regular Scientific School for teachers of physics from the JINR Member States at CERN was launched. The School is organized by the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN).

School of the series provides an opportunity for teachers of physics to immerse into fundamental science.

The programme of the School includes lectures, visits to experimental facilities, meetings with physicists in informal and working atmosphere and excursions. Lectures and excursions will be held by staff members of CERN, JINR and other Russian scientific organizations whose staff members work at CERN.

The working language of the School is Russian. The School will be finished on 10 November.

Since 2006, CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research, Geneva) has been organizing national programmes for school teachers of physics. More than 1,000 teachers from many countries participate annually in various events.

Since 2009, the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research jointly with the European Organization for Nuclear Research has been holding scientific schools for Russian teachers of physics which can also be attended by teachers from all the JINR Member States.
