A word from the EP Deputy Department Head - March 2021

Dear Colleagues in EP,

We are in the second year of a global pandemic. Safety measures and travel restrictions are impacting our work, communication and social life. Despite all the difficulties, the new issue of the EP Newsletter demonstrates that scientific life at CERN and in the HEP community continues to flourish and leads to amazing results...
