The Largest Virtual Visit to CERN in the History of Virtual Visits

Croatian Academic and Research Network - CARNet, organised the largest virtual visit to CERN in the history of virtual visits. The visit was viewed by more than 200 participants from a hall at the 2015 CUC Conference, and from more than 500 locations in Croatia and the world via live broadcast.

The visit was held on 19 November at the CARNet Users Conference, CUC 2015, as part of the Inspiring Science Education project co-financed by the European Union from the Information Communication Technologies Policy Support Programme as a part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP ICT PSP).

The Croatian public had the chance, for the very first time, to tour CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, where scientists and engineers from all over the world examine the fundamental structures of the universe.

After the visit, participants had the chance to ask the world-class scientists questions and hold a discussion with them.
