On 15 and 16 February, IdeaSquare, the innovation space at CERN, will throw open its doors for you to explore how to make the most of our facilities. IdeaSquare is a rapid prototyping and multipurpose innovation space at CERN, freely accessible to members of the CERN community. During the two-day event, you will be able to visit the facility, interact with the team and those using the space, and hear presentations about all of our activities, from prototyping to education and entrepreneurship.
Bring an idea from your workplace that you want to prototype or learn about different prototyping challenges from the CERN community. Join one of our hands-on exercises to challenge your way of thinking, as we do in our educational programmes. Find out more about the upcoming opportunities for the EU-funded ATTRACT programme. Get help to organise your next event or hackathon, and learn more about the forthcoming Science Gateway offerings. Discover our innovation knowledge journal. Hear from CERN alumni who have gone on to become successful entrepreneurs sharing their lessons on how to bring your deep tech innovation into the market.
In addition, we’ll showcase R&D&I projects and prototypes made by some CERN colleagues and others addressing societal challenges. Projects created by multidisciplinary student teams collaborating with researchers at CERN will also be displayed. Finally, you can also join us for a special evening to watch the screening of Ghost Particle, a documentary film that features IdeaSquare.
The event will take place at IdeaSquare on 15 and 16 February from 9.00 a.m. both days. Building 3179 is located directly behind the Globe of Science and Innovation and you can access it through the Globe car park. The space is open to anyone with a CERN badge. The full agenda is available on the Indico page for the event and no registration is necessary.
Join us at our Open Doors event to discover how you can develop your prototype, contribute to training and inspiring the next generation, or how to use our space for your next event.
