Between multilateral and scientific diplomacy: Minister Gentiloni on mission in Geneva today

Minister Gentiloni is in Geneva today where, together with the Head of the Federal Department for Foreign Affairs Didier Burkhalter, he will be guest speaker at the opening session of the Conference of the Ambassadors and of the External Network of the Swiss Federation on schedule at the United Nations Office, and address more than 250 Swiss diplomats and officials.  

The Foreign Minister, accompanied by the Minister for Education, University and Research, will then pay a visit to the CERN, the world’s most important research laboratory on particle physics, after only slightly more than a year since the visit by Italian Prime Minister. At the CERN, the Minister is scheduled to meet the Director General, Italian researcher Fabiola Gianotti, and all the other Italian scientists and researchers working at the Centre.

In all, the Italian researchers working at the CERN are 2,200, 287 of whom are among the CERN’s officials, out of a total of 2,531 employees.
