CERN will be hosting the third edition of TEDxCERN on 9 October 2015, under the theme of “Breaking the rules”. This will allow us to curate a programme that focuses on transformative innovation. History is full of examples of innovations that have changed the world. Think of the World Wide Web, for example, or the profound impact of polio vaccine. The time is ripe for some new transformative innovation, and we want TEDxCERN 2015 to be a platform for that. More information on the programme and on how to apply for ticket will be available in the summer.
