Description

Challenge Based Innovation @ mediterranean - Final presentations & prototype expo

Note - presentation location has been changed to the council chamber (503-1-001) due to the large amount of signups. External participants are guided from the main reception (building 33), more information over email on Wednesday.

Prototype presentations are still at IdeaSquare (3179) 18.00 - 19.30, guided walking from the presentations. 

Challenge Based Innovation (CBI) is a four month 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 societal, human-driven needs meet research at CERN.

More info about CBI from the course website, cbi-course.com

The Gala on 1.12. will introduce the proof-of concept prototypes the five student teams have developed to answer a wide range of societal challenges, inspired by people and research at CERN.

Dress code: a suit / dress  is not required - come as you are!
