CERN Accelerating science

CBI 2014-2015

The second iteration of CBI focused on thoughtful designs from students. Students from European and Australian business, engineering and design schools, working together with some CERN's brainiest scientists, have developed prototypes for a range of wearable technologies  -  including garments for the elderly that prevent hip fractures and wrist monitors that trigger more socially-aware behavior among young people with Asperger's syndrome. 

Desired outcome 

Demonstrating the value of fundamental research to society. 

How it started 

The second iteration continued from the previous years' CBI pilot course.
