TEDxCERN 5th edition - November 20th @ BATIMENT DE FORCES MOTRICES

TEDxCERN 5th edition - "The Elephant in the Room"

The 5th edition of TEDxCERN will take place on November 20th at the Bâtiment de Forces Motrices in Geneva. The theme for the event is 'The Elephant in the Room', and it will explore the kind of transformative scientific innovation that is impacting the world we live in across a wide range of disciplines.

The disconnect between our science-dependent society and the science on which it is built is a major concern to us.  This year, we felt that there are many elephants in many rooms, and rather that ignoring them in the hope that they might go away, it’s time to engage.

Speaker line-up will be released in June and tickets will be available in August. Stay Tuned!
