Event description


Accelerate your business idea with CERN

Explore first-hand how CERN technologies and know-how ­can help you create new business opportunities, overcome barriers to technical development and accelerate business growth.

CERN is a world-leading centre of physics and engineering excellence that develops and operates some of the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments. CERN has contributed to industrial and societal applications in many sectors including the World Wide Web, invented at CERN nearly 30 years ago. The range of revolutionary technology enables innovation in areas as diverse as:

  • Medical applications for preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic purposes

  • Industry 4.0, including digital manufacturing, robotics, industrial IoT and control systems integration

  • Computing applications to support big data collection, management and analytics

The CERN Knowledge Exchange workshop will provide a unique and interactive platform to discuss your ideas directly with CERN experts, as well as to learn more about opportunities for collaboration with the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) and CERN, through the STFC CERN Business Incubation Centre (BIC), based in the UK. The STFC CERN BIC is dedicated to accelerating innovative business concepts through the commercialisation of CERN technologies.

Please note that this event is not intended to cover opportunities for procurement with CERN.

Who should attend?

  • Tech entrepreneurs, start-ups and existing businesses seeking technical expertise to help solve complex challenges

  • Academics with business ideas interested in accessing CERN technologies and exploring the opportunities highlighted above

  • Technical business leads with an interest in CERN technologies to support R&D

Why attend?

  • Attend focussed roundtable discussions with CERN knowledge transfer experts & STFC, facilitated by the Knowledge Transfer Network

  • Hear from other businesses that have already benefitted from exploiting CERN technology

  • Share your ideas with businesses working in a similar environment

  • Learn about the potential of CERN technologies in medical applications and Digital Manufacturing (Industry 4.0)

  • Book one-to-one sessions with CERN & STFC staff

  • Find out about STFC CERN BIC and how it could transform your business

The application of CERN technologies

This workshop and the roundtable discussions will focus on two industry sectors linked to CERN’s technical strengths:

  • Digital Manufacturing (Industry 4.0)

    There is an increasing trend of automation and efficiency in manufacturing processes with connected sensors and machines, autonomous robots and big data technology. CERN’s own facilities call for this technology and can now be applied to your business.

  • Medical applications

    CERN has expertise in technologies that contribute to advances in medical applications related to preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. CERN seeks innovative applications of its technologies in the broader healthcare domain. It has already contributed to the development of medical imaging, radiotherapy or digital health technologies for simulation and modelling.
