One of our most outstanding projects is the collaboration we maintain with the European Organization for Nuclear Research, better known as CERN. Our team is the only one in Latin America that works in the construction of detectors for the Small Wheel of the ATLAS experiment.

ANDES Project: The underground laboratory that will transform Chile into an international scientific reference
With an investment of 40 million dollars, this experimental space seeks to consolidate itself as a world-class research focus, geared especially to the search for traces of neutrinos and dark matter.
Masterclass, the activity that teaches young students how is the work that a scientist performs in the Large Hadron Collider through didactic activities was carried out successfully
Organized by the CCTVal, this activity promoted by CERN seeks to bring closer physics to the young people in a fun and educational way. The activity was attended by more than 50 middle school students of the V region, who had the opportunity to understand part of the work that a scientist performs in the Large Hadron Collider.
CCTVal researchers create the first gaseous phase nanoparticles manufactured in Chile.
A research group of the Scientific and Technological Center of Valparaíso (CCTVal) of the UTFSM managed to produce clusters or nanoparticles that will allow to generate collaborations with multiple scientific disciplines.
CCTVal receives its International Advisory Committee
During their stay, the experts were able to get to know the facilities of the Center, its projects and collaborations, as a way to strengthen its links with academia and industry.
CCTVal of the USM trains teachers of secondary education in particle physics
"Become a Physicist for a day" summoned professors from high schools and colleges of the Valparaíso Region to update them in this area of applied physics using real data from the prestigious European Organization for Nuclear Research - CERN.
