Blue Brain at Cité des Métiers

The Blue Brain Project will be part of the Nomads Foundation exhibition ‘Futur des métiers’ at the Cité des Métiers taking place in the Palexpo Exhibition Centre, Geneva, Switzerland this November.

The Cité des Métiers is Switzerland’s largest exhibition of professions, trades and training where adults and students can see various jobs in action and ask advice from professionals in their respective fields.

On the exhibition stand, Blue Brain will be taking visitors on an exciting journey into the interior of the rodent brain. Visitors will have the possibility to view images showing digital reconstructions of areas of the rodent brain and through a digital 3D Cell Atlas, to discover the number, types, and positions of cells in all areas of the mouse brain.

A strategic priority of Blue Brain is to encourage interest in STEM career paths for the younger generation. Accordingly, Blue Brain Scientists and researchers from Blue Brain will be on hand throughout the six days to talk about the project, to discuss possible future study options for students and explain more about the diverse number of roles at the Blue Brain Project. The researchers can also answer any questions in French and English.

On the Nomads Foundation stage, visitors can build giant Blue Brain puzzles and compete for prizes.

Dace Stiebrina, Blue Brain’s Event Manager is looking forward to taking part in the event, “we are delighted to join the Nomads Foundation’s ‘Futur des métiers’ as we are keen to encourage the next generation of scientists and engineers.”
