Welcome to CERN: Accelerating Innovation

Technologies developed to help physicists to understand the origin of our universe did such more than providing us with nuclear energy and the World Wide Web. This presentation will give you an idea about how to lift the secrets of the ancient Egyptian pyramids, detect counterfeit renaissance paintings, and how to use a particle beam to cure cancer with innovations stemming from fundamental research.

Strengths-based development

What if you knew how to uniquely motivate each employee and help them work better together as a team? Organizations move away from the command-and-control management style to creating a culture that focuses on people's strengths and development. Making this change will help employees -- and customers -- have better experiences at your company. A positive approach. But not a "soft" one.

Discussion "The Future of Work is Now: How can Lithuania embrace it?

Facebook Livestream

Over the next decade, digital transformation and automation will further redefine the global workforce: companies will have to reinvent themselves and provide both the resources and the opportunity for lifelong learning.

Data speaks for itself: The World Economic Forum’s initiative aims to provide one billion people with better skills and jobs by 2030. Coursera, along with Salesforce, LinkedIn, and other tech leaders, pledged to upskill 10 million workers over the next decade in high-demand domains including data science, technology, and business.

This panel will connect global tech leaders and startup representatives, aiming to turn talk into action by initiating a collaboration.
