CERN Accelerating science

European Organization for Nuclear Research

Meet-up

Every other week, KT organizes meetings where CERN people who are interested in entrepreneurship and innovation can meet. These informal meetings have an overarching topic, sometimes introduced by external guest speakers, other times by CERN people with extensive knowledge on a specific subject.

If you want updates on entrepreneurship at CERN and information on when the next meet-ups will be arranged, please sign up for the mailing list.

Do you think a specific topic deserves attention or have any other suggestions for the entrepreneuship meet-up, please let us know at mail-kt@cern.ch

 

Upcoming meet-ups

The EM-Us are currently on holiday! We'll be back again in January 2017.
