The 5 Unimore students engaged this week in the CBI-ER – Challange Based Innovation Emilia-Romagna – project at CERN in Geneva are Alessia Bruera, from the Engineering Department Enzo Ferrari, Paolo Cavicchioli, from the Department of Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science, Paride Acierno, from the Department of Engineering Sciences and Methods, Luca Bertolasi and Daniel Alberto Sebastià, from the Department of Economics Marco Biagi.

Unimore students are facing some innovation challenges, where futuristic technologies developed at CERN are applied to problems with a high social impact. The activity develops within multidisciplinary teams, with students from the University of Bologna and the University of Ferrara. This week the teams will have to interact with CERN researchers, in the CERN IdeaSquare space, to explore technologies and research capable of giving answers to problems with high social impact, with the support of prof. Matteo Vignoli, project manager, Clio Dosi and Elahe Rajabiani of the Department of Engineering Sciences and Methods.

The CBI project is part of the Contamination Lab of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, coordinated by Bernardo Balboni, and includes the support of Sanofi Genzyme, specialty care division of the pharmaceutical company Sanofi, which renews its commitment to projects in the open innovation, after participating in the first edition of ICARO Unimore.
