CERN Accelerating science

CBI Barcelona

CBI Barcelona, running for the first time with only Catalonian universities in 2018, brings together students from three universities in Barcelona to solve societal challenges with the help of CERN technology. 

Desired outcome 

The projects are an elaborate mixture, where the technologies derived from research at CERN meet societal, human-driven needs. 

How it started 

CBI MED, a collaboration between Spanish and Italian universities, grew in popularity so much that the two countries' courses had to be divided in two separated courses: CBI Barcelona and CBI X (2017)/ CBI ER (2018-2019)

Participating entities

ESADE Business School, Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) Barcelona, Polytechnic University of Catalonia
