As part of the EUCAS 2017 conference, the University of Geneva is hosting a lecture by Fabiola Gianotti entitled “The Higgs boson and our life”.

The CERN Director-General will tell the story of a key moment in science: the discovery of the Higgs boson.
Since 2012, this discovery, which proved the Brout-Englert-Higgs mechanism, has revolutionised particle physics and attracted the attention of the general public to the research carried out at CERN.
Come and discover or rediscover CERN’s mission, which combines scientific research, innovation, education and training, and international collaboration – a peaceful and necessary mission for our times.

Lecture in English with simultaneous interpretation into French.
