Abstract

This note provides preliminary results from a survey of 384 fellows and students previously or currently working and studying at different experiments on particle accelerators at CERN. The aim of the survey was to understand the impact, in terms of both monetary and non-monetary outcomes, of a research and study period at CERN. The first results suggest that the majority of respondents, irrespective of their working status, report a positive impact of the period at CERN, and expect this effect to hold also with respect to future career and salary outcomes.
