How will the future be created? How do we prepare for the unplannable? And how to manage crises? Opening CERN’s innovation knowledge to different industries can help them learn from the organization's experience and explore new methodologies to tackle universal and relevant challenges for the future.
A two-days workshop with the Austrian Chamber of Commerce, where companies, institutions, and organizations from Austria were invited to explore and experiment with new ways of thinking, was offered this week by Terra Mater Studios in association with wonnd agency at IdeaSquare.
This FutureLabs workshop offered participants the opportunity to learn from CERN experience in building new approaches to huge and also uncertain challenges and planning for the unknown. CERN has a large experience in developing experiments to answer big questions. Indeed, scientific megaprojects require a way of thinking that challenges what we certainly know, involve collaborations at a world level, during a large time scale, and results not only in the creation of new knowledge, but also new infrastructures, technologies and materials that do not exist yet.
This type of workshop aims to bring CERN innovation culture closer to companies, so they can create a better future that positively impacts the people on the street.
