CEE-Swiss Impulse Session
FROM CERN TO DAILY LIFE:
THE REAL-WORLD EFFECTS OF BIG SCIENCE PARTNERSHIPS AND THE ROLE OF CEE IN ALL THIS.
We heartly invite you to join our webinar with Barbora Bruant Gulejova, University of Bern
About the Webinar
What is the secret for Switzerland to be the most innovative country? How does physics contribute to the Swiss and the European economy? How does the European Organization for Nuclear Research, CERN, drive innovation? What is the potential for CEE industries if they collaborate with Big Science infrastructures?
Basic science is the main driver of innovations and technologies, needed for the economic progress and solutions of global societal challenges, like the climate change, energy, health, a clean environment, smart cities and other goals of the UN Agenda 2030, including even peace. Society is largely unaware of the socio-economic impact of “abstract” science. All the applications, technologies, and spin-offs omnipresent in our world come to life through the collaboration of science with industry.
About Barbora Bruant Gulejova
Passionate about building bridges between science and society, Barbora Bruant Gulejova, acts as a boundary spanner between different silo communities. She did her master’s in physics and management in Bratislava, Slovakia (Comenius University). Following her PhD in thermonuclear fusion at EPFL, she continued a multidisciplinary career between science, the United Nations, the government, the industry and education. For 10 years she has been working in the CERN community as an expert in science outreach, education and communication. In parallel she worked at the interface between Big Science and industry and in knowledge transfer, among others as the coordinator of economic collaboration of Slovakia with CERN. Barbora’s goal is to inspire current and future society leaders with the value of science for society and sustainable development.
