CERN Accelerating science


IdeaSquare is our human experiment for “colliding” minds and ideas, a place where the open spirit of the square takes inspiration from the proton-proton collisions at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Our activities revolve around six interlinked areas:
  • To host and support R&D&I/KT projects linked to CERN,
  • To coordinate and participate in selected EU projects,
  • To co-design and run rapid prototype and design thinking workshops at our facility,
  • To co-design and run innovation educational programmes,
  • To harvest and share experimental innovation knowledge
