Challenge Based Innovation (CBI) is a project course, where multidisciplinary student teams and their instructors collaborate with researchers at CERN to discover novel solutions for the future of humankind. The projects are an elaborate mixture, where the technologies derived from research at CERN meet societal, human-driven needs.

CBI @ mediterranean is running from 14.9.2015 to 11.12.2015, culminating to a prototype expo held at CERN introducing the student team results.

Focus of this second visit to CERN is idea development/maturation, prototyping and meeting CERN experts.
