TEDxCERN 2014 will demonstrate how science is essential in shaping the landscape that future generations will navigate. The theme this year is ‘Forward: Charting the future with science’ and the talks will build a bold, new vision for tomorrow. The programme has three sessions – ADAPT, CHANGE, CREATE – and is available online.

Speakers at the event include biotechnologist Hayat Sindi, cardiopad inventor Arthur Zang, innovator Topher White, plant geneticist Nina Fedoroff, nano technologist Sonia Trigueros, science philosopher Robert Crease and teen scientist Jamie Edwards, among others. ATLAS physicist and BBC TV-presenter Brian Cox will host.

TEDxCERN has also produced three animations with TED-Ed this year, all of which will premiere during the main event. The first of the animations will be released online tomorrow, followed by the remaining two later in the week.
