Testimonials

  • Francesco Zen

    “Thinking the Unknown” was my first time at CERN and allowed me to enter (combined a very special encounter with) in the most famous lab in the world, opening the way to the discovery of very interesting research approaches and topics (with the contents we went through) during the three days I spent there.

  • Renzo Avesani

    Experiencing the CERN, … a game changer moment. Being introduced to the logic of big science discovery, the art of simplifying in order to grasp the essence of the problem, the need to let a humongous amount of people do their job…. invaluable hints for managing complex projects.
