  • [01] CERN exhibition 'Accelerating Science' at Evgenidio Foundation

    The Evgenidio Foundation on Monday held an official presentation for the interactive traveling exhibition "Accelerating Science" set up by CERN, the European nuclear research facility in Geneva, which will be on show at its premises in Athens until May 31.

    The exhibition, which is on a European tour to celebrate the 60th anniversary since CERN's foundation, is designed for adults and children over 10 years old and aims to bring general public closer to the groundbreaking science taking place at the huge particle accelerator at CERN's underground facility. It is hosted in Greece by the Evgenidio Foundation, the private school Ellinogermaniki Agogi, the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), the University of Athens, the Institute of Accelerator Systems and Applications and the Union of Physicists of Greece.

    Entrance is free of charge and the exhibition will be open to the public every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 17:00 to 21:00 (excluding bank holidays) and at weekends from 11:00 to 21:00.

    The organisers have also planned special educational programmes for school parties on all mornings during the week provided they are booked in advance (210 9469631 and 210 9469632, Monday to Friday, from 9:00-14:00). A separate training programme for primary and secondary school science teachers will also take place alongside the exhibition.

    Monday's presentation was attended by general secretary for research and technology Christos Vasilakos, who described the exhibition as a major event and said that Greece hopes to maximise the benefits from its participation in the CERN projects in coming years. Other speakers included NTUA Rector Simos Simopoulos, who highlighted the contribution by NTUA scientists in CERN experiments, and Greece's national representative at CERN Professor Dimitris Nanopoulos, as well as CERN director Professor Manolis Tsesmelis.

    Both of them highlighted the visit paid to CERN by President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias last week, during his visit to Switzerland, where he met the Greek team of scientists at the facility and signed the visitors' book. Greece was among the 11 states that signed the founding declaration for the CERN facility in 1953.
