Globe de la science et de l'innovation

A universal symbol of research, knowledge and innovation
The Globe of Science and Innovation symbolises CERN’s message to society in the fields of science, particle physics and cutting-edge technologies and their applications in everyday life.

The Globe of Science and Innovation is a landmark for CERN and a symbol of sustainable development for all. It is 27 metres high and 40 metres in diameter, which is about the size of the St. Peter's Basilica's dome in Rome! A unique visual landmark by day and by night, the Globe of Science and Innovation is a metaphor for Planet Earth. On the ground floor , the ‘Universe of Particles’ exhibition takes the visitor on a journey deep into the world of particles and back to the Big Bang.

The permanent exhibition

The spectacular permanent exhibition "Universe of Particles" , which is fun and accessible to everyone, is located on the ground floor of the Globe and covers all aspects of the research undertaken by CERN. Based on an exceptionally innovative surround-sound concept, the exhibition provides visitors with a unique interactive experience on the human adventure and the technological and scientific achievements of the laboratory.

 

The "Universe of Particles" exhibition has been made possible through the support of Rolex.

 

Events in the Globe

As part of the Globe’s programme, the Foundation promotes scientific, cultural and educational activities, including conferences with researchers who are happy to share their knowledge, enthusiasm and projects. The programme also proposes debates designed to increase understanding of how research today will ultimately serve human society.

 

Depending on the possibilities and circumstances, conferences, workshops, events, shows and even temporary thematic exhibitions take place at the Globe. For information about the programme, dates and times of these events, please refer to the CERN site.

 

The programme of activities taking place at the Globe of Science and Innovation is proposed by CERN to the Council of the Foundation, which determines whether the projects are suitable according to the goals of the Foundation and the status of the corresponding funding.

Private initiators, provided that they are donors or sponsors, are also free to propose events to be organised within the Globe infrastructure.
