CERN Accelerating science


Connecting curious minds

Incremental or linear innovation is not enough to solve the challenges humanity is currently facing. Instead, exponential innovation capabilities and systemic thinking are needed to secure the future of our societies. It is in this context that IdeaSquare ties science together with open innovation initiatives, and hosts and organizes special events for curious minds and researchers interested in innovation knowledge.

When the building is not in full use, IdeaSquare can offer access to its open work areas, rapid prototyping facilities and its meeting rooms for short, deadline-driven Challenge Events, such as: Innovation Events, Workshops, Hackathons (an event compressed into a short number of days where participants work towards a concept prototype).
