is a project course where, in this first round, one student team and their instructors collaborate with researchers at CERN to discover novel solutions for the future of humankind. The projects are an elaborate mixture where societal, human-driven needs meet R&D&I technologies in detection and imaging from the ATTRACT project.

Directions on how to get to CERN here: (note, no more free bus tickets at the airport)

When on CERN site, you can find the meeting venue IdeaSquare behind the Globe, across what is now the Science Gateway parking construction site. Walk past the Globe, through a gate in the fence, turn left, and you'll find IdeaSquare.
