Forward-Charting the Future with Science (http://tedxcern.web.cern.ch/). The event will provide a unique platform for the world's leading researchers, scientists, developers, designers, and artists to share and build bold visions of the future. We want to pass the message that science is essential in confronting the major issues and challenges facing society today and would like to offer all institutes involved in the research programme at CERN the opportunity to follow TEDxCERN live.

Our speakers range from experts exploring nanobiology for future medicine and innovators of wireless technology that saves trees and human lives to developers of new resources for food and energy, nurturers of natural human abilities in mathematics and science, and young talents breaking new ground. Their groundbreaking ideas in research, technology, innovation and education will contribute to facing many of the challenges that we see in the world today. You find our speakers here below (http://tedxcern.web.cern.ch/speakers )

Fabiola Gianotti (Experimental physicist);
Fatima Denton (coodinator for the African climate policy centre);
Nina Fedoroff  (Researcher on biotechnology);

Introduction by professor Freya Bleckman

Professor Freya Blekman

Professor Blekman is a research professor in elementary particle physics at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, working at the Interuniversity Institute for High Energies - IIHE (ULB-VUB). She experimentally tries answering questions like: how did the universe evolve? What are the smallest constituents of matter and are they really the smallest? What is the nature of space and time? What, really, is mass?

Her research interests include the search for signs of new physics, like for example Super-Symmetry (SUSY) using precision measurements and direct searches, focusing on the top quark sector.
