CERN Science Gateway Campus


Education is one of the pillars of CERN’s mission. In 2017, CERN’s Director General, Fabiola Gianotti, laid out a vision for a one-of-a-kind outreach centre that would expand CERN’s already extensive range of education and outreach programmes, reaching out to more and younger visitors.

Designed by the world-renowned agency Renzo Piano Building Workshop, in collaboration with Brodbeck Roulet Architectes Associés, the Science Gateway will welcome between 300,000 and 500,000 visitors every year, immersing them in the discoveries, science, and technologies of CERN.

The CERN Campus now comprises Science Gateway and the Globe of Science and Innovation, which was donated by the Swiss Confederation in 2004. Since then, it has played a central role in achieving greater public engagement and today in collaboration with Science gateway it will keep offering numerous, fascinating public events and activities happening all year round.
