CERN UN Roundtable

chaired by James Gillies (CERN), Antonella Del Rosso (CERN), Corinne Momal Vanian (UNOG)
Tuesday, 11 March 2014 from to (Europe/Zurich)
Description In the spirit of strengthening links and sharing best practices among the two Organizations, UNOG and CERN will be jointly organizing a round table discussion on the issue of “The challenge of communicating science and technology to the world: issues and solutions”.

It is hoped that the discussions can highlight the experience of various organizations and institutions in their efforts to communicate and inform in several languages on topics – science and technology – that are often perceived as distant and arduous by the layman.
