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 societal, human-driven needs meet research at CERN.

In CBI A3, students from Politecnico do Porto (Portugal) and Swinburne University of Technology (Australia) work in teams to create and prototype ideas that connect CERN technology with UN Sustainable Development Goals. You can follow the CBI A3 student teams here:

In CBI-X, students from University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, and University of Ferrara (Italy) work in teams to create and prototype ideas on two specific topics: surgical kits development and personalised communication. For more information, please contact:

General info about CBI you can find from the program website,

If you wish to participate in any of the program sessions or presentations and do not have a CERN access card, please contact and we will arrange you visitor access.
