Against the background of the international community’s efforts to define a new development agenda, this one-day symposium co-hosted by the United Nations Office at Geneva and CERN, with the support of Switzerland and France in their capacity as the two CERN host states, will explore the value of the CERN model of cooperation in building trust across boundaries and strengthening the provision of global public goods in a rapidly-changing international context. The event will bring together policy makers, scientists and representatives of civil society in a new debate about how to build synergies across communities to move forward global objectives. The aim is to stimulate an innovative exchange that can help to shape more creative approaches and partnerships in addressing the challenges of today.
