How will the future be shaped by new trends? Come and discuss our shared future in a programme of talks and debates interspersed with comedy, theatre and music. You will hear CERN's Director-General, Fabiola Gianotti, and the head of the CERN Theory group, Gian Giudice, give a glimpse into questions for the future. The head of the LHC's high-luminosity upgrade, Lucio Rossi, will share his enthusiasm for the luminous future of the LHC. Expand your horizons with debates on future intelligence, open science and arts and science collaborations. Enjoy a bit of music with an excerpt of the opera Einstein on the Beach by the Grand Théâtre de Genève and a short performance by world-renowned jazz musician Vladimir Tarasov.

All presentations will be in English with simultaneous translation to French.

An excerpt of the opera Einstein on the Beach by Philip Glass and Robert Wilson, performed by the Einstein-Ensemble, specially composed with students of the Haute Ecole de Musique de Genève - HEM for the performance at the Grand Théâtre de Genève. Einstein on the Beach is a masterclass in how to create a work on Einstein's theory of relativity without being a physicist, besides, what kind of physicist would want to do that? The flow of the music forms the base for a meditation on the passing of time, spaces and events. The opera is considered to be one of the most important musical creations of the twentieth century.

Physicists study the fundamental structure of the universe using highly complex instruments and technology, such as CERN's accelerators, detectors and computing systems. Some of these instruments have applications beyond particle physics, in areas such as biomedical research, diagnostics and therapy for a variety of diseases. Progress in these medical fields can sometimes be linked to technological innovation at CERN. Join us as we explore some of the examples of knowledge and technology transfer from CERN to the healthcare sector.
