ACCELERATE is the country-specific, one-month artists residency award. The award is for artists who have never spent time in a science laboratory before. It is the sister strand of CERN’s flagship artists residency programme, COLLIDE

Every year, the ministries or foundations, from two different countries, fund a different artistic domain to participate in the ACCELERATE Awards. The winners receive a stipend of 5000 CHF for their one-month residency at CERN, and a budget covers accommodation, subsistence and travel costs. The awards are made following open calls in each country, and the jury comprises the cultural partners as well as representatives from Arts at CERN, including scientists from CERN.
