CERN contributors whose mobility is temporary reduced, now have the possibility to obtain a temporary “reduced mobility” parking permit for their vehicle.

If you are for example recovering from an accident, you can apply at the Medical Service for this permit. After approval, the Reception and Access Control Service will issue the car sticker and you will be able to use the parking spaces reserved for persons with disabilities on the CERN site.

Tomorrow, 8 March, is International Women's Day (link is external), an occasion that has been observed since the early 1900s to inspire change for the equal rights and treatment of women in society. One aim of the day is to draw attention to the struggle for equal rights and representation for women in the workforce. A part of this year's theme – Inspiring change – is to "inspire change for more women in science, engineering and technology". So to mark International Women's Day, we asked voices from the CERN community to express their opinions on gender, diversity and collaboration at CERN.
