COLLIDE Artists Residency Award is the flagship programme of Arts at CERN.

The main goal of the residency is to develop expert knowledge in the arts through a connection with fundamental science. COLLIDE gives artists the opporunity to encounter the multi-dimensional world of particle physics. Since 2011 the COLLIDE award calls to artists to win a fully funded residency for up to 3 months at CERN.
