Big Science at the service of your business
Why the Business Incubation Centre of CERN Technologies is the right place for your business
Switzerland hosts some of the world's largest research centres: CERN and the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI). Here, thousands of engineers and scientists work together to answer some fundamental questions about our world. To this end, CERN and PSI plan, build and operate some of the most sophisticated machines in the world. The exceptional know-how and the intellectual property they possess can help to solve many challenging technological problems and is now available for start-ups and high-tech SMEs.
You might be thinking that the idea of applying CERN and PSI's technologies to your business is far-fetched. Don't let this mislead you! The span of technological products and solutions from big science is only limited by your imagination. The field of application includes countless areas, from data storage to cooling systems, from sensors and detectors to drones, power conversion, vacuum technologies, machine learning, and much more...
We invite founders, start-ups, and SMEs to discover the true technological potential of CERN and the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), to learn more about their hidden competencies, to find out how to access their world-class IP, and to see where and how they can help improve products or achieve a breakthrough. To give you the first glimpse on the broad scope of application, here are a few examples of successfully implemented CERN and PSI technologies.
- Cutting tools for industrial piping
- Aerial inspection with drone technologies
- Robotic software
- Inspecting moving parts in operation
- Measurement of water pollution
- Data compression, storage and analysis
- Improving Chocolate
At the event, we will also present the new Business Incubation Centre of CERN Technologies, a joint initiative of PARK INNOVAARE and CERN, in partnership with the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) and the FHNW. The BIC of CERN Technologies is dedicated to start-ups, spin-offs, and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) not older than two years, who aims at developing a project leveraging on CERN technologies and know-how. Up to 3 incubatees per year will receive a special grant of CHF 50k and will benefit from the special access to CERN license agreements.
With us you will...
- explore new solutions for your products or services
- meet technology transfer experts from CERN and PSI and learn more about their know-how and how it can suit your business
- learn more about CERN Business Incubation Center program
