Origins -  a European Researchers’ Night 2013 event



Friday September 27, 2013 18:00–23:00
CERN Globe of Science and Innovation

SPEED-DATING: Meet the researchers who discovered the Higgs boson, mapped the Big Bang with Planck… and more
Discover the “human face” of research, through direct informal contact with the researchers who took part in the hunt for the Higgs boson and in the Planck research and those who apply the new technologies developed for this research to everyday life.

The registration for the Geneva speed-dating event has been closed!


LIVE WEBCAST – Researchers on Stage
World known scientists and protagonists of the Higgs and Plank research will take audiences on a spectacular journey back in space and time, through particle physics (the infinitely small) and cosmology and astrophysics (the infinitely large). Viewers in local and remote audiences will experience the moments of our primordial origins from a sudden expansion of space and transformation of energy into matter at the birth of the universe, 13.7 billion years ago.

Highlights: Fabiola Gianotti, Gian Giudice, Peter Higgs, Joe Incandela, Julien Lesgourgues, Luca Parmitano from the ISS, George Smoot, Sam Ting and many more!
