CERN Accelerating science

Experimental Innovation

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

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.
