Challenge Based Innovation gala

There’s a new experiment starting in CERN called IdeaLab where we work together with detector R&D researchers to help them to bridge their knowledge into a more human, societally oriented context. Currently we are located in B153, but will move our activities to a new facility next to the Globe in May 2014.

One of our first pilot projects is a 5 month course CBI (Challenge Based Innovation) where two multidisciplinary student teams join forces with Edusafe & TALENT projects at CERN. Their goal is to discover what kind of tools for learning could be created in collaboration with the two groups. After months of user interviews and low resolution prototyping they are ready to share the results with us in the form of an afternoon gala.

We warmly welcome you to join us to see the students' results and experience the prototypes they have conceived.

The event is in three parts, you are welcome to visit all of them, or just the one(s) that your personal schedule allows. For the remote participants, the presentations (part 1) wil be available through a CERN webcast ( 14.30 - 16.45 (GMT+1).

Part I 14.30 Project presentations at 222 Filtration plant

Part II 17:00 Prototype demonstrations at B153

Part III 19:00 The afterparty at B153
