This Friday at VGTU - direct TEDxCERN broadcast
On October 9, at 15.30 students, teachers and members of Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (VGTU) community are kindly invited to participate at TEDxCERN broadcast by direct live link from Geneva, Switzerland, in the foyer of SRA I-03 auditorium. You are welcome to join informal conversations and discussions, drink tea and have snacks, joining the event or leaving it at any time.
 
The CERN laboratory in Switzerland has the world's largest particle accelerator - Large Hadron Collider (LHC), and they are the Internet pioneers in Europe. It is a unique research laboratory, with even 2.5 thousand employees and more than 12 thousand trainees, researchers, scientists, engineers, and students. CERN is VGTU partner.
