During short periods when the building is not fully occupied, IdeaSquare can host or facilitate innovation or entrepreneurship-driven events and courses. Such events combine different areas of technology and society with a very specific purpose, organized and funded by external organizations. These events are typically short in duration, lasting up to two or three days. IdeaSquare provides the facilities and can contribute to short term innovation events by offering innovation-related education and coaching.
Challenge Based Innovation (CBI) is a project course, where multidisciplinary student teams and their instructors collaborate with researchers at CERN to discover novel solutions for the future of humankind.

Researchers in Residence Program
IdeaSquare offers a program for researchers who wish to stay at IdeaSquare to carry out experimental innovation-related research for a longer time period - from six months up to two years. The program is intended for post-docs or equivalent, who are associated with an education establishment and can arrange their own funding to cover the living and lodging costs in the Geneva region. IdeaSquare offers a desk and free access to its facilities.
While carrying out research at CERN, the researcher is expected to contribute to the on-going programs at IdeaSquare (e.g. CBI) and/or to the referred CERN IdeaSquare Journal of Experimental Innovation (CIJ).
