Join us and find out more about CERN – what has happened in its 70-year history and what is going on today. To mark the facility’s anniversary we invite you to a day of activities – an exhibition, an inspiring lunch seminar, and an evening event, Science Showcase.

CERN, which lies on the border between Switzerland and France, houses the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments. Have you ever wondered whether CERN could be the next stage in your career? Come and find out more!

Lunch seminar – opportunities for students, 12.15

Join us at a lunch seminar to hear the experiences of Ayla Borglund, Developer and Project Coordinator at CERN, and Jonas Strandberg, professor at KTH with a background at CERN.

They will tell us about the exciting opportunities available for students.

Lunch (vegetarian) is included if you register in advance. You can just turn up on the day, but then lunch is not guaranteed.

Exhibition – open all day, 10:00-16.00

Come and look round the exhibition, and learn more about the research conducted at the facility. The exhibits show examples of equipment that Swedish groups are developing for various detector and accelerator projects at CERN.

We will be in Lundmarksalen at Astronomihuset.

Evening event: Science Showcase – at Stadshallen, 18.00

Welcome to the Science Showcase, with stories from scientists and engineers about science, life and adventures at CERN. An exhibition will be open from 17.00.

Please note that the seminar and the evening event will be held in English.
