David Elder Lecture- Markus Nordberg

"Connecting the Worlds of Micro to Macro: from Open Science to Open Innovation — CERN as a Case"

Dr Markus Nordberg from the Development and Innovation Unit at CERN will be discussing how fundamental research challenges push instrumentation needs, and how collaborative development of ideas and technologies generated for research at CERN inspire innovation processes for addressing societal challenges.

Glasgow Science Centre is proud to host the David Elder Lectures in partnership with the University of Strathclyde's Department of Physics. Some aspects of the lectures are technical and they are therefore most suitable for interested adults and older teenagers.

About the Planetarium


The Planetarium at Glasgow Science Centre has been upgraded to a spectacular, state-of-the-art, fulldome digital projection system (what a mouthful!). Our shows are live presenter-led or film based to take you on a journey through the solar system, into the Milky Way Galaxy and beyond, offering a truly out-of-this-world experience. Our spectacular full dome films display 360 degrees across the 15-metre hemispherical dome of the planetarium. It really is spellbinding stuff.
