Project

Science Gateway will be an emblematic education and outreach facility next to the Globe of Science and Innovation. Through exhibitions and hands-on educational activities, Science Gateway will enable people of all ages and backgrounds to engage in its discoveries, the science and the technologies of CERN, sharing the passion for knowledge and research. Science Gateway will be a beacon to encourage young people to aim for careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Inspired by the diverse technical buildings and underground tunnels at CERN, Science Gateway will consist of five different spaces to host exhibitions, educational activities, hands-on laboratories, a large auditorium, a shop and a restaurant, all connected by a bridge above the Route de Meyrin and tramway line.
With more than 2 000 square metres of solar panels and more than 400 trees being planted, the Science Gateway will have a net zero carbon footprint.

Science Gateway has been designed by world-renowned Renzo Piano Building Workshop with support from Brodbeck-Roulet architectes associés.
